Frequently Asked Questions!
What is the difference between overnight camp and day camp?
The main difference is that with overnight camp, the campers get dropped off on Monday morning and they get picked up on Friday afternoon. With day camp, the campers get dropped off and picked up each day. The campers will have an awesome time either way and will get to experience all that Camp OAC has to offer.
What is Camp OAC?
Camp OAC is a children’s summer camp located just outside of Kelowna, BC on the beautiful Okanagan Lake. We have over 50 acres of land including beaches and forest which makes us a truly nature based experience. The camp has been in operation since 1950 and has welcomed thousands of campers over the years!
What can we expect at Camp OAC this summer?
Unforgettable summer camp memories that focus on immersing campers in a nature based camp experience. We are already planning new and improved activities with some awesome equipment on it’s way. 2022 is going to be the best summer yet!
What is the difference between Camp OAC and Camp Owaissi?
They are two different names for one great place! We are slowly working to remove Camp Owaissi and to go by Camp OAC. You will see this transition take place over the next few months. At the same time, we are busy rebranding the camp with an awesome new logo that will be out in the next few months. OAC stands for Okanagan Anglican Camp!
What Covid-19 protocols are in place?
We are working with the Ministry of Health and the BCCDC to develop protocols for this summer. As the Covid-19 is constantly evolving, we will provide updates on specific protocols closer to the summer. We are making preparations to improve the protocols that we had in place during 2021 to ensure we keep all campers, volunteers and staff as safe as possible.
Here are some of the plans that have already been put in place:
1. Contactless drop off and pick up in the parking lot.
2. Reduced indoor capacity.
3. Increased hand washing and cleaning protocols.
Does Camp OAC require campers to be vaccinated?
At this time, there is no requirement for campers to be vaccinated in order to attend Camp OAC. We are waiting on guidance from the Ministry of Health and will provide updates on this as necessary. We aim to create a safe and inclusive environment at Camp OAC.
Why have the camp fees increased?
We understand that the past few years have been difficult for many in the Camp OAC community. As an organization we have faced many challenges including the uncertainty and reduced revenue from many of our operations and the drastically increasing costs of our summer camp operations. We strive to pay our staff a fair wage while ensuring that we reinvest in the camp. We have done all that we can to keep the camp fees as low as possible while ensuring the sustainability of the camp for years to come.
When do I need to pay the camp fees?
For any registrations from January 24th to April 30th, Camp fees can be paid when you register or you can choose to pay them at any point until May 1st 2022. If you would like to delay payment then please select “offline payment” when you reach the payment screen. You can then log into your account at any time and make the payment.
For registrations from May 1st until the start of each camp, Camp fees are due in full when you register.
What if I can’t afford to pay the camp fees?
Camp OAC relies on generous donations from our community to support our bursary fund. If you are in need of applying for a bursary then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are able to contribute towards supporting the bursary fund then you can do so by clicking on the donate button while registering. You can also donate through the following link - Donate Now!
What is your cancellation policy? All registrations are 50% refundable if cancelled more than 7 days prior to the camp. Registrations that are cancelled within 7 days of the start of the camp are not eligible for a refund. Registrations that are cancelled due to medical reasons may be eligible for a 100% refund. Camp OAC will do all that we can to continue to operate during challenging conditions such as wildfires and smoke based on the guidance from the BC Camping Association and the Ministry of Health. If a camp is cancelled by Camp OAC then a 100% refund will be offered.
