Summer Day Camp at Oak Mountain!

For campers entering Kindergarten through age 13, Kidcam Summer Day Camp thrives in the heart of Alabama’s Oak Mountain State Park.

Camp Director, Lissa Walker, says, “Kidcam at Oak Mountain is a very unique summer camp. Campers get to utilize the whole park for various activities. During the summer, you can find our campers on the trails exploring, swimming in the lake, visiting the petting farm, paddle boating or at the Wildlife center learning about native birds in Alabama.”

Kidcam offers 10 weeks of summer fun with all the best activities offered at Oak Mountain State Park. Full summer and weekly camp sessions are available online now for registration. Purchase only the weeks you need and build your summer around you!

Boating, Archery, Golfing, Petting Farm, Interactive Wildlife, Playgrounds, Sports Courts, Geocaching and Swimming will be a part of our weekly schedule.

Kidcam’s engaging weekly themes are action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity each week of camp. Kids Choice is the theme for summer 2018 allowing campers to choose between a variety of new programs, activities and challenges led by their camp counselors. Weekly schedules & field trips will be posted online in mid-March.

We will have morning drop off at a convenient location at the front of the park off of the 119 entrance at the Ranger Station, as well as a rotating schedule using the back entrance closer to 280. This will allow parents a more convenient in-and-out when dropping off their campers each morning. We will have access to 3 Shelby County vans to allow us easy transportation inside of the park. These will be driven by our adult staff members. Pickup location will vary based on the time of pickup, but these details will be known at the start of camp. It will range between the Ranger Station and the Main Park Office Building.

Our Home Base is the Oak Room near Main Park Office.
