DAY CAMP PROGRAM
Our youngest campers are ages 4, 5 and 6, and our staff are specially trained to nurture and guide the campers in a non-competitive way. Campers will love our playgrounds, daily swim lessons, and the ability to explore every activity we offer at camp!
Our campers entering 2nd through 4th grades are split into groups based on grade, allowing our activity staff flexibility to create a program tailored to their needs. We focus on kindness and identity as we encourage campers to grow!
Our Upper campers are entering 5th through 8th grades and are amazing role models to our younger campers. With a focus on community and self-development, students work to improve their individual skills while working together to build each other up.
Four Oaks Day Camp serves children ages 4 to 13 each day from 9am to 4pm. No matter the age or when a camper first joins us, we believe every camper should experience every activity. We also understand that campers grow in different ways, and encourage everyone to participate in whichever way they feel comfortable.
We provide bus transportation from Bethel, Brookfield, Easton, New Milford, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Southbury, Weston, and Wilton at central pick-up locations. Want a bus stop in your town? Give us a call!
Check out our proposed bus schedule below, contingent on state COVID regulations. Exact pick up locations and times may change slightly in the spring.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The health and safety of every camper is the primary concern of every staff member of Four Oaks Day Camp. We keep a staff to camper ratio of 1 to 4 across the facility, ensuring that all campers are adequately supervised. Additionally, our staff go through a rigorous selection and training process to ensure that your children will have an outstanding and safe summer. We have a registered nurse on site at all times, authorized to administer camper medications and work closely with families regarding a wide range of manageable concerns.
ON-SITE HEALTH CENTER
We have a registered nurse on site, authorized to administer camper medications and work closely with families regarding a wide range of manageable concerns. Four Oaks’ health center is equipped to handle any situation.
Campers should come to camp with their first application of sunscreen. Counselors are trained to assist campers in re-applying sunscreen after lunch and every swim time.
Iced water stations are located throughout camp, with counselors trained to encourage campers to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
BUGS & TICKS
As a primarily outdoor day camp, annoying mosquitos and ticks may find their way to Four Oaks. While we ask parents to have their camper apply bug spray before they come to camp each morning, we also spray our property with tick deterrent to help keep the population low.
We understand that COVID will likely still be around in the summer of 2021. We may need to adjust our plans to meet the recommended guidelines and requirements from the state, ACA, and CDC once they are announced for summer 2021. This might mean smaller groups, changes in transportation or meals, masks, not mixing groups, and changing some activities. Rest assured that our parents will be kept apprised of any changes that we make due to COVID guidelines. At any point, if our program changes, families will have the chance to opt out at no financial risk to them.
FOOD AT CAMP
No need to pack anything! We provide a catered lunch each day for campers with a variety of options, a daily afternoon snack, and water available all over camp.
Should you choose to supply food for your camper, we will keep it refrigerated until lunch time.
Gluten free and vegetarian options are also available. Contact us for any other dietary restrictions. Four Oaks Day Camp is a Nut Free facility.
