Camp costs $200 for one session of camp until June 1. Beginning June 1 camper cost is $225, with no refund. Camper payments may be done in chunks. You'll now have options on how much and the selection of the automatic withdrawal date from time of registration.
You may reach out to your sessions head counselor for this request. However, we do not guarantee the request may be met. Generally, campers are bunked with like age and gender. We will not place a camper more than one year older in a cabin with younger campers, and vice versa. The registration form does not ask for bunk requests because we believe everyone will be with everyone throughout their Sooner experience. And generally we want campers with like aged campers.
Yes! During the registration process you may choose to pay a $55 downpayment at time of registration with two additional, auto drafted payments of $72.50 each. The auto drafts are taken a month after the proceeding payment.
No. At time of registration we ask campers to turn in their cell phones to the head counselors. There are occasional times during the week where campers may have opportunity to access their phones. And if a parent is needing to get a hold of their teenager, they'll be able to directly through our head counselors during the week of camp.
Yes! All adults who are a part of camp are background checked at the local, state and national levels.
