Summer Camp is offered in eight one-week sessions. Our Summer Camp is the perfect "first camp" experience for young children. Activities are specially planned for children ages 3 to 6, and include a variety of indoor and outdoor activities including arts and crafts, creative movement, storytelling, drama, cooking, games, swimming lessons, field trips and/or special guests. Summer Camp is staffed by mature, experienced personnel who work at our school or camps during the regular school year.
Updated Vacation and Summer Camp information will be published two months prior to Vacation or Summer Camp. If you have questions about unpublished upcoming camps, please call the OSMS office.
