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 over 100 stakes in the Salt Lake Valley and is open to young women who have just completed the 7th grade. Young women outside of Oakcrest participating stakes can also register beginning April 1.
The camp is open for 9 weeks of the summer with 11 to 12 stakes attending each week. Activities include: archery, zip line, giant swing, target shooting, crafts, hiking, obstacle course, foam slide, spiritual classes, and more. The goal of all Oakcrest activities is to promote spiritual growth, provide wholesome fun and meaningful experiences, and improve social skills.
Meals are served in a large main lodge, and the campers stay in cabins with bunk beds under the supervision of a counselor. A staff of amazing young adult women is hired each summer to run the camp.
Because Oakcrest is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the standards of The Church are emphasized, but young women of all faiths are welcome.
