Join us for Summer 2022 as we celebrate our 10th year of camp!

It is our goal to help campers develop friendships with each other while they are spending their summer with us. We help them connect with, celebrate, and enjoy each other. Skills for life, friends forever. What’s better than that?

Camp KO will operate in-person sports, academic, and arts camps on the following weeks in 2022: June 20-24, July 11-15, July 18-22, July 25-29, August 1-5, August 8-12.

Full-Day programs $400-520/wk
As Camp KO celebrates its 10th year of summer fun, we are very excited to offer an incredible program line-up with tons of choices and new programs.

While this has been a challenging few years for educators, administrators, and students, Kingswood Oxford School has been able to adapt and host in-person classes since September of 2020. Based on this framework, in the summer of 2021 we were able to run a full camp schedule while maintaining the health and safety of our campers and our staff, and we are excited and confident to run a safe and fun summer camp in 2022. We have worked hard again this year to create a calendar packed with a mixture of sports, arts, and academics with something for everyone. 
We will be posting more details about drop off & pick up procedures, lunch protocols, and more as we get closer to the summer. Stay tuned!

Please allow for traffic delay time during the rush hour.
  • Required Forms

    All children must have a school health assessment form or a CT Youth Camp Health Form submitted prior to attending camp. We are able to accept forms with an exam date that is less than 3 year old.
    If a child requires medication, an inhaler, EPI-PEN or other medical delivery device, the medical authorization form must be submitted prior to camp and signed by the parent and the child’s doctor. Upon arrival at camp, the medication or device must be in a zippered plastic bag in the original packaging with the prescription label present. Depending on the medical authorization form, either our first aid responder will hold on to it or the child may be authorized to keep it in their backpack.
  • Lunch, Snack, and Water/Beverages

    Campers will bring their lunches in an insulated lunch bag that will be placed in a refrigerator in the cafeteria. At lunchtime, the lunch bags will be placed on tables so that the child can find their lunch. Children will have options to eat either inside or outside (weather-dependent). Children must bring a refillable water bottle and non-perishable snacks each day in a backpack or drawstring bag that they will keep on them. There will be water stations on each field and in our buildings where campers can refill their water bottles. Except for baseball, children attending a half-day will not be on campus during lunchtime.
  • Medications and Medical Delivery Devices

    This includes inhalers, epi-pens, glucagon injectors, and medication. Any child that needs medication administered during camp hours or has the need for a medical delivery device must have this form completed and signed by the parent and child’s doctor. The form must be dated after Aug. 13, 2021. Please complete in full the online health form during registration. 
     
    On the first day of camp, both the form and the device (in its original packaging with a prescription label) should be in the child’s backpack. Each coach will have a list of their campers who have an inhaler or epi-pen and the accompanying medical plan.
  • Face Coverings (subject to change)

    Face coverings must be worn by campers at check-in, when going to the bathroom and when entering and exiting the cafeteria, inside all buildings and when leaving for the camp. These guidelines are subject to change.
  • Camp Attire

    Wear appropriate attire for your particular sport, and for those in art and academic programs, please wear comfortable light clothing that you can move around in. Please bring sunscreen and an extra pair of socks, and an extra shirt each day in a backpack. (Campers will be reminded to use sunscreen, but will be expected to apply it themselves.)
  • Sports Camp Required Equipment

    Tennis - Your child must bring their own racquet each day. Lightweight comfortable clothing and tennis shoes are recommended.

  • Inclement Weather

    Camp will be held regardless of the weather. Schedules will be modified so that everyone is safe indoors until we can return to outdoor play. 
  • Health and Safety

    The health and safety of our campers and staff are of paramount importance to us. We will follow all health and safety protocols set forth by the Department of Health and the OEC’s Youth Camp Guidelines.
     
    A certified first-aid responder will be on campus at all times to handle any injuries or illness and will collaborate with the camp's medical director should additional care be needed. Parents are expected to pre-screen their child for any symptoms that are COVID-19 related and campers may not attend if they are under any type of quarantine. There are no refunds for children who are under quarantine. 
     
    If a camper shows any signs of illness during camp, they will either be placed in an isolated room or in an outdoor shaded area away from all other campers until the parent can come for pick up. The first-aid responder will stay with that child until the parent arrives.

I just wanted to thank the camp staff at KO for a great week. My son was hesitant to start school in the fall as a sixth-grader and after just a week of camp, he had so much fun that he can't wait to start school. From the kind "greeters" to a fun-filled day, everyone was wonderful and we will definitely be signing up for KO camps again next summer! - Krista W.

Thank you Camp KO! My daughter absolutely loved lacrosse camp. She was a first-time player and picked it up quickly thanks to your staff. She made new friends and had wonderful things to say about her counselor. See you next year! - Megan C.

Thank you for offering programs for the kids to get out. It has been tough but we felt completely comfortable with the measures taken to keep our children safe. It was great for the kids to get out and exercise safely. The boys had a great time. - Anthanette R.

I just wanted to tell you what a great experience my daughter had at all the KO programs this summer. The whole camp was so well-run, and she truly got so much out of it. It was amazing what she learned in those one-week sessions. The teachers devoted so much attention, and she really grew in her basketball, tennis, and creative writing skills. So not only did she have a ball, but she also took so much away from each program. - Stacy R.
