Daily updates from the camp director at Camp Oz so parents can follow along with their camper’s adventures
It took until the end of the afternoon on the last full day for us to see the first tiny bit of not-so-great weather. Pretty lucky, if you ask us! We had warm temps and sun for the majority of the day, until the clouds started to gather around 4pmRead More
Wednesday marked the start of the second half of the week for Camp Oz, and you could definitely feel a more relaxed, low-key feeling around camp. Campers were getting fully into the routines of their daily schedule and knowing what to expect when. Day 4 also marked ANOTHER incredibly niceRead More
Hopefully, the weather keeps holding out for us, because it’s only gotten better over the week! Tuesday was our nicest day yet with sunny skies and perfect temperatures, a great day for more camp activities!Day 3 brought even more cohesion and camaraderie between the camper groups, it seemed. From swimmingRead More
The first full day of Camp Oz is in the books, and it was great! Cooler overcast weather with occasional peaks of sun gave us a nice breezy day for being outside. Campers had rotating cabin activities for the day – 2 blocks in the morning and 2 blocks inRead More
A brand new year of camp is under way, and we’re off to a great start! With a nice cool day for us yesterday, check-in went smoothly and all 117 campers got settled into their cabins. The first item on their schedule was unit activities with their cabin mates and itRead More
Our last full day of Camp Oz has arrived. It was a bit gloomy and chilly this morning, but I’ll take that weather over Sunday’s humidity any day – and it certainly didn’t stop the campers from getting to their first activities, even the swimmers. The water level has risen about 2-3 feet from the damn break a few days ago, so we moved over to Troy Beach right next door and the cabin groups still got to swim. Our last cabin groups of the day got to participate in the horses, so we sent a group of volunteers to assist with that activity.
Alas, this day finally brought some sunshine for the campers! Waffles were for breakfast today – always a hit with this group. We had a birthday in the house, so we all celebrated that as well.Read More
Tuesday started off with some light rain again, but that did not deter the campers from getting off to a great start to the day! After breakfast, cabins were off to their first activity of the day. Today was the first day the camp store was open for campers, so it was neat to see what caught their eye. Camp staff set up several indoor options for cabins that didn’t want to be in the rain, so various groups voted on this morning activities.Read More
We woke up to our second day of camp with much cooler temperatures. After a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, fruit, and cereal (always a crowd pleaser), a quick rain shower hit camp. But after some cabin time to clean and organize (very needed, even after only one day) the campers were ready to hit the first official activities of the day.Read More
Our first day at Camp Oz was hot, hot hot! We welcomed 130 campers out to Camp St. Croix for the week in what felt like 120 degree weather. But everyone sure was troopers! The campers got settled into their cabins and headed to unit activities where they got toRead More
