Youth Day Camp

Due to COVID-19, Oakland County Parks and Recreation will  not be hosting its youth day camp in 2020. Camp OAKVentures will return in 2021, so we have left the details of the camp, and communities that generally participate so you can see what Oakland County Parks offers with the camp experience. We look forward to hosting your children in 2021. Thank you for your patience as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and provide the safest experiences for our visitors and staff.

Camp OakVentures

Do your kids love adventures and exploring new places? Our adventure day camp consists of county park tours, spending their time in the great outdoors! Possible camper activities may be: making waves at our waterparks, strolling trails through guided nature hikes, lying under the stars in our star lab, shooting archery, scaling a rock wall and soaring through the air with a free standing zip-line! 

Campers will also spend their days running through inflatable obstacle courses, riding the BMX track, doing crafts, and participating in wacky games to name a few! Trained summer camp staff and Oakland County Parks and Recreation bus drivers will pick up participants and transport to and from our parks each day. 

Campers are required to bring each day a lunch, two snacks, refillable water bottle, sunscreen, socks, tennis shoes, bathing suit and towel. Camp is held rain or shine.  

Camp OakVentures is a state licensed day camp program. All abilities are welcome to attend camps. Please call 248-858-7759, 48 hours in advance if your child requires special accommodations.

Cost: $155 per camper. Camp registration includes t-shirt, all park entries and tickets throughout week of camp. 

Age: 6-12 (Must have completed Kindergarten) by first day of camp.
