Announcement Regarding Oakcrest 2020
With great sadness, we announce that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has decided to close Oakcrest Girls Camp for the summer of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the nature of the activities and sleeping and eating arrangements at Oakcrest, we cannot guarantee proper social distancing and sanitation. While our hearts are heavy because of this loss to both our staff and campers, we know that it was made prayerfully and with their best interests in mind. Be assured that all registration fees will be refunded. We ask for your patience as we work through this process.
A decision has not been made as to the feasibility of allowing this year’s campers to attend in the future. We will carefully review all possibilities and will post a final decision on this site once it is made.
We wish to thank this year’s stellar Directorship for the countless hours they have spent preparing for this summer, as well as our amazing staff. We also acknowledge the disappointment of our campers and want you to know that you have been and will be in our prayers.
Oakcrest is nestled in the beautiful Kamas Valley and is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Up to 3,000 girls attend Oakcrest each summer. Established in 1958, Oakcrest now serves 102 stakes in the Salt Lake valley and is open to young women who have just completed the 7th grade.
The camp runs for 10 weeks of the summer, with 9 to 11 stakes attending each week. Activities include: service projects, indexing, archery, zip line, giant swing, gun range, crafts, hiking, obstacle course, basketball, volleyball, singing, spiritual classes and lessons, and much more. Meals are served in a large main lodge, and the campers stay in cabins with bunks under the supervision of a counselor. A staff of amazing young-adult women is hired each summer to run the camp.
Oakcrest activities provide meaningful and fun experiences that foster spiritual and social growth.
Oakcrest will only register girls who have just completed 7th grade. Seventh grade young women who do not live in a participating stake are welcome to come to Oakcrest!! You may register through Open Enrollment. Girls are only allowed to attend Oakcrest once. Open enrollment registration begins April 1, 2020. Participating stakes will register in March, so space is limited! Registration will close two weeks prior to each week.
