Visitor Policies

We are thrilled that Oak Hill is a place that people want to be even when they aren’t participating as registered campers. However, for the safety and focus of our campers, we want to limit outside visits during our camp sessions for the following reasons:
  • Only staff and registered campers are covered by our insurance policy.
  • It is difficult to keep track of unannounced visitors and we must know who is on camp property at all times to maintain a safe environment.
  • Each dean plans a detailed program and a constant stream of visitors can easily cause distractions to that program.
Family Member VisitsFamily members may visit but must check in with the camp manager at the white building before going anywhere else on camp grounds.
  • A check in sign with the camp manager’s phone number will be posted in case there is no one at the white building.
  • Visitors may not walk or drive to the cabin areas without prior notification and permission of the dean or camp manager.
  • It is preferred that you communicate with the deans before camp or at check-in on the first day of camp about any planned visits. Those visits are preferred to be during evening meal times
  • Some deans may choose to have a “Family Night” when visits are preferred and highly encouraged.
  • Birthday visits are also permitted but prior communication is required.
  • Exceptions: Parents of campers with special dietary or medical needs may visit as needed and necessary to meet the needs of their children.
Minor Visits:  No non-family minors may visit camp unless they are specifically invited by the dean of the week or the camp manager for a specific event/activity.
  • Minors who are not registered campers should not call and ask deans or camp manager to show up.
Check-In Policy:  It is VITAL that any and all visitors check in immediately at the white building with the camp manager.  A check-in sign with the camp manager’s phone number will be posted in case there is no one at the white building.
  • Visitors may not walk or drive to the cabin areas without prior notification and permission of the dean or camp manager.
