COVID-19 Safety Protocols: To ensure the safety of OHS staff, volunteers, participants and animals, we ask that campers stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or live with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last five days. At this time, masking is not required for OHS programs, although children who feel more comfortable wearing masks are encouraged to do so. We are regularly monitoring public health regulations and will update our COVID-19 safety protocols if anything changes.

March Break Camp Cancellation Policy: Refund requests received 7 days in advance of the scheduled camp program are eligible for a refund (a non-refundable $25 administration fee applies). Refund requests received within 7 days of the scheduled camp program are not eligible for a refund. Note: Full refunds will be issued in the event the OHS has to cancel a scheduled camp program.
