Summer Camp 2015

 

A Tradition of Excellence for Over 70 Years

Ojai Valley School offers a fun and enriching summer camp for day and resident students on our campuses in Ojai, California. Each year, OVS welcomes students from around the globe. Many are returning campers, drawn back by the warm humor of their favorite camp counselors, while others are discovering the fun of OVS summer programs for the first time. Together, they will have the opportunity to ride horses, explore the swimming holes and hiking trails of the Sespe Wilderness, splash in the surf of the Pacific Ocean, sharpen their academics in college-prep classes, stage plays, and become champion archers!

At the end of camp, they will have forged lifelong friendships and developed their independence, confidence, teamwork, leadership, and character. OVS also provides a unique opportunity for international students to develop their English language skills while enjoying fun in sun-drenched Southern California. Our flexible schedule allows day and resident campers to enroll for two, four, or six week sessions.

In addition to our traditional Academic Camp, this summer OVS is excited to offer expanded camp offerings in film, and robotics. Learn more by visiting the Specialty Camp pages in the right column.
