Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, summer camps are closed for the year 2020. Not to worry though, you can still register early for summer 2021! Stay safe this summer by staying home.
Black Oak Wilderness School's Summer Camps are a truly unique and incredible experience. While many other camps focus on younger students, BOWS has created extraordinary and exciting summer camps specifically for teenagers and young adults. You will not be hearing Kumbaya around these campfires, or gluing macaroni noodles to construction paper. Our students spend their time learning the confidence and independence they will need as they transition into adulthood through outdoor adventure classes and recreation.
Cancelations must occur at least 7 days prior to the start date of a camp for a full refund. Extenuating circumstances will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Students asked to leave camp for behavioral or disciplinary reasons will not receive a refund but depending on the nature of the event, may be asked to come back another week free of charge.
Black Oak Wilderness School has a zero tolerance policy on violence, bullying, racism, sexism/sexual assault, homophobia, ableism, or xenophobia. Any student displaying these behaviors will be asked to leave camp. They must participate in a mediated restorative conversation and sign a behavior contract before being allowed to return. Please have conversations with youabout these things with your students before they arrive at camp.
