Please have your child bring a lunch and snacks to camp. Due to allergies, please do not include any nut snacks. Be sure to make note of allergies or a special diet on the Camp OC Informed Parental Consent form. Campers should dress in weather appropriate play clothes and should bring a hat, running shoes, sunscreen and water bottle. If your child’s camp requires additional items they will be listed on their registration form.

Okanagan College expects all campers to behave in a respectful way towards other campers, camp staff, equipment and camp facilities. Parents will be notified if their child’s behaviour is inappropriate. If the inappropriate behaviour continues, Okanagan College holds the right to remove the child from camp without a refund.

Refund Policy To withdraw from a camp, contact us by phone, email or in person. Full refunds will be given if the request to withdraw is made at least five business days in advance of the camp start date. Requests made less than five business days in advance of the camp start date, will be refunded 50 per cent of the registration fee. No refunds are given after the camp start date or for days missed.

Informed Parental Consent Form The Informed Parental Consent Form will be emailed to you right after you register your child for camp. Please make sure to read it, fill it out and submit it at least two weeks prior to camp starting.

Weather Disclaimer Summers in the Okanagan are awesome! We always strive for the campers attending Camp OC to be outside for most or a portion of the day. However, with the increase in wildfires and smoke this is not always possible. Please note that we will be following the air quality index and may have to accommodate activities and activity levels accordingly.

Consider volunteering at Camp OC this summer. If you are between the ages of 14–18 and are currently enrolled at a middle or high school, you are eligible to volunteer at Camp OC. You can expect a summer full of fun. You will also earn volunteer credits towards graduation, as we report all volunteer hours back to the School District you are attending.
