Young women are invited to attend Oakcrest during the summer following their 7th grade year. This is a one-time opportunity for girls who have just completed the 7th grade and will be entering 8th grade. Exceptions will not be made for those who have been accelerated or held back a year in school for any reason, including disability or illness. Age is only considered as an eligibility factor for girls who are homeschooled. In this case, homeschooled young women can use birth dates to determine grade level. For Oakcrest 2023, a homeschooled camper’s birth date must be between September 1, 2009, and August 31, 2010.
If a camper finds that she is unable to attend Oakcrest during her assigned week after registering with her stake, she may choose to go another week if space is available. A camper who desires to switch weeks should contact her stake leader, who will then contact Oakcrest to make arrangements. All changes must be made no later than two weeks before the week the camper is scheduled to attend with her stake. A registered camper who finds she cannot attend at any time during the summer can find another eligible young woman to go in her place; however, Oakcrest must receive the new camper’s registration no later than two weeks before the week of camp. In this case, payment for the replacement camper should be worked out at the stake level or between the families involved, whichever is applicable. Oakcrest does not take responsibility for making sure that the replacement camper reimburses the young woman who can no longer attend. Oakcrest will not accept last minute registrations or replacements on busing day. Oakcrest does not issue refunds.
We encourage campers to come for the entire week of Oakcrest. Campers should not plan on coming late to camp, leaving early, or coming and going during the week. Campers who cannot attend the entire week their stake is scheduled are welcome to register for another week. Should an emergency arise which would require the camper to go home early or arrive late, arrangements need to be made with the camp through the stake leader. Campers will not be allowed to check in or out more than once during the week. For safety reasons, an Early Release Form needs to be filled out and signed by the parent if the camper is being picked up early. This form can be accessed under the Forms tab on the website. The form needs to be given to the stake leader by the Monday morning of camp. Campers will only be released to the person listed on the form after they show picture identification. Campers arriving late will need to let their stake leader know the date and time they will be arriving so that she can alert camp leaders. Camp gates close each night at 9:30 pm.
Oakcrest is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and doctrines of The Church will be taught. Young women of other faiths are welcome to attend.
