August 2020: Thank you for your support during this challenging year. The health and safety of our campers and staff remains our highest priority and we are working hard to explore multiple contingencies and operating models for a safe 2021 reopening. We are optimistic that we will be able to provide programs and services next summer. However, we are still going through the very difficult work of exploring how to do so safely for our campers, staff, and the Quincy-area community. Because the status of testing availability, treatment options, vaccine development, and public health orders continue to change, we do not expect to open up registration for our programs until January or February 2021. We will provide more updates as we know more specific timing details. Thanks for your continued patience and understanding! To stay connected with the most update to date news on Summer 2021, make sure you are on our e-mail list by signing up at the bottom of this page.
5/16/20: We recently sent out an email to our 2020 Campers regarding our 2020 camp season. If you have registered for 2020 Family Camp, Youth Camp, or Labor Day Weekend Camp, please click here.

FAMILY CAMP REGISTRATION POLICIES

COVID-19 UPDATE (4/17/20)
- Discounts must be applied at time of registration and cannot be utilized after submitting your registration or after payments have been made.
- New Camper Discounts are only available to camper families who have never been to OFRC before or who have not attended in the last 5 years.
- New Camper Discounts are not available during Priority or Early Bird Registration and may not be combined with camp scholarships. Camperships may not be combined with New Camper or other promotional discounts.
- Facilities Maintenance and Electricity surcharges and dog registration fees are not eligible for Early Bird, New Camper or other promotional Discounts.
- DOGS ARE ONLY ALLOWED DURING MEMORIAL DAY WORK WEEKEND, DOG WEEK FAMILY CAMP, AND LABOR DAY WEEKEND FAMILY CAMP AND ONLY IF REGISTERED AND CONFIRMED BY OFRC STAFF PRIOR TO ARRIVAL.
- The fee for dogs is $20 per dog per night.
- There is a maximum of 2 dogs per a family and a limit of 15 dogs on site at a time.
- The first night dogs are allowed on site during Summer Family Camp is the night of Saturday, June 27, 2020. The last night dogs are allowed on site is the night of Saturday, July 4, 2020. Dogs are not allowed on site the night of Sunday, July 5, 2020.
- Dogs must be licensed, trained, well-behaved, up to date on their vaccines and shots, spayed or neutered and be in good health to attend Dog Week. Dogs not meeting these requirements will be required to leave the site. No refunds will be given to families whose dogs are required to stay off site.
- We request that all campers bringing their service dog to camp let us know in advance of arrival on their registration form. A service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Tasks performed can include, among other things, pulling a wheelchair, retrieving dropped items, alerting a person to a sound, or reminding a person to take medication. While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA. These support animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression, anxiety, and certain phobias, but do not have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Even though some states have laws defining therapy animals, these animals are not limited to working with people with disabilities and therefore are not covered by federal laws protecting the use of service animals. Dogs that are not considered service dogs (such as emotional support, comfort and therapy dogs) are only allowed during our designated Dog Week, Memorial Day Work Weekend and Labor Day Weekend Camps and are only allowed if registered and confirmed by OFRC staff prior to arrival.
- A complete list of OFRC Dog Policies for when your dog is at camp is available upon request from the camp office.
Thanks to the support of many generous individual donors, supporters and funders, we are able to provide a significant number of Camp Scholarships (“Camperships”) each summer to families who cannot afford the full cost of camp due to financial barriers or circumstantial hardships. Camperships are largely determined by gross household income and low-income, Oakland households are given priority to available funds.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAMILY CAMP RATES & REGISTRATIONS
Thursdays through the weekends are typically a little busier due to people not having to take off as much work. However, some Themed Weeks (Family Music Week and Folk & International Dance Week) have final performances on Friday or Saturday evening, which some families who leave Friday AM have lamented missing. Have more questions? Give us a call!
That depends on the ages breakdown of your family. Due to Fire Marshall restrictions, we can only allow a max of 4 camp cots in each tent and either 2 or 3 twin beds in each cabin (depending on the cabin). Some families with smaller children will push two of the camp cots together, creating a bed about the size of a double mattress that can fit three young children. Other families will select two tents, two cabins, or one of each and spread out accordingly.
Each Spring, we send out our Pre-Summer Welcome Packet to registered campers, which provides a full list of items to pack, as well as other important information to plan your trip to OFRC. Want to know more detail before you sign up? Give us a call!
