Summer Camps

Oak Learners offers a unique camp experience designed to engage naturally inquisitive and active children,

All Camps explore the Arts, Mindfulness and Community through activities that have been specially designed to inspire and ignite creativity and confidence in our  campers. 

Arts & Culture Camps are open for campers ages 4-8 / Youth Leadership Camps are open for campers 9-12. 

The Arts
 Campers will have the opportunity to explore various artistic expression mediums, experiment with a variety of instruments, musical genres and techniques, while collaborating on musical compositions and strengthening their individual skills. Through the arts,  campers will have the opportunity to develop their social skills, confidence and cognitive flexibility as they explore concepts within the dramatic arts.
Community
Campers will spend as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying local field trips designed to encourage them to explore their natural surroundings and develop an understanding of their own roles in nature and in our community.
Mindfulness
 In addition to participating in guided yoga and meditation exercises, campers will participate in specially designed self-awareness activities, giving each camper time to be introspective, ask questions, relax and be creative.

 

*NOTE: Private music lessons and Academic tutoring are also available throughout the summer months.


It was my son’s first time at camp (he’s 4.5 years old). He absolutely loved it and was a little sad it was over. I loved that they challenged him. Every day was an activity that incorporated art, music, movement, and fun. The teachers were AWESOME and the location is so welcoming. We can’t wait to return next summer. Highly recommended!
