Special evening and weekend programs offer a variety of social and team building activities – camp favorites are Counselor Hunt, Capture the Camp Flag, and Dinner Theater. Our caring staff is composed mainly of Dixie alumni who carry on the Dixie tradition of wanting to create the magic for new campers – of giving back - “The Dixie Way”. Forming life long friendships and developing an appreciation for the outdoors are just part of the Dixie experience. Camp offers weekly sessions beginning June 3 and running through July 28.

Oak Tree Camps

 

 

 

Summer is a very special time when a child seeks to learn, explore and develop new skills, hobbies, and interests. Our program is specifically designed to meet the diverse and ever-expanding interests and recreational needs of our campers. Because our emphasis is on participation, personal achievement and skill attainment rather than on competition alone, campers of every age and skill level are made to feel comfortable and successful. Through the use of scheduled activity periods and structured electives, each camper can experience a well-rounded program that includes athletics, aquatics, creative arts and outdoor adventures. Our elective program allows each camper to have direct input into their daily schedule. During elective periods, campers may wish to try new activities, concentrate on their favorite ones or enhance their existing skills by participating in individualized instruction or clinics.
