My girls loved Oasis Day Camp this summer. They loved it so much that I took advantage of the Returning Camper Early Bird Discount so that they would be ready to go again for the 2013 summer season.
We went to the Oasis Day Camp in Dobbs Ferry, NY. This Westchester location resided at Mercy College overlooking the Hudson River. Our summer schedules had us starting camp at the end of the summer. I was a little apprehensive as to how they would do being the new girls after camp had been going on for weeks. No worrying needed here! Pick up on the first day was happy smiles and non-stop talking in the car about the friends they had made and how much fun they had.
The girls enjoyed the daily activities – swimming on site, sports, drama and a Talent Show. It was important to me to go to a camp that offered swimming lessons too. They participate in the American Red Cross swim program. By the end of the time, it was obvious to me that the girls were building their confidence in the water and they were becoming stronger swimmers.
In addition to the activities, trips and fun events like International Day, Oasis Day Camp also had caring counselors who took the time to learn all about my children. They felt comfortable, safe and were eager to get up early each day to get to camp on time. I am happy that they were role models for my girls.
When our time at camp was coming to an end, the girls wanted to keep the fun going so I signed them up for the Extension Week. Each day, they went swimming and took a field trip to places such as Cranberry Lake, American Museum of Natural History and fishing in Central Park. As an educator, I know how important it is to expose your child to many different types of experiences and Oasis did just that.
So, Oasis Day Camp gets a two thumbs up in our book. Although we attended the Dobbs Ferry location, there are many Oasis sites in the Tri-State area as well as Massachusettes. Long Island, Central Park, Brooklyn, Queens and NJ are some of the locations that you can choose.
Oasis is all about the children and I cannot wait to send my children back for the 2013 Camp Season!
