    Great Time At Camp!

    August 10, 2018: This is my daughters second year at the camp and she said she had a great time!! She said the daily activities were different than last year and she enjoyed that. She has really enjoyed the coaches each year and getting to meet new friends along the way. She was ready for next years camp before she left this year.

    I would highly recommend!

    August 10, 2017: The camp was well structured, and in the end, you could clearly see the bond of camper with their councilors. This is very much the experience I was hoping for out of the camp. The structure, Director and coaches at OSU made all the difference! I would recommend this and my daughter already wants to sign up for next year.
