Get your kids enrolled into some camps they'll never forget and an experience that will make you proud you're able to provide. They'll be safe, exploring new endeavors, and most importantly having a cool, fun time !!
They can learn to fly an airplane, build and launch rockets, be a princess for a week, score a winning basket, and spend the afternoon on the fastest slip-n-slide in Michigan!

For 23 years, since 1995, Oakland Yard Summer Camps has offered parents and campers a fun and exciting place to be, a caring environment and a safe place to spend their summers. Summer camp is about making new friends, learning new skills, opportunity for social interaction and just having new experiences. We are very proud of our excellent staff and the variety of activities that we can offer your camper. We look forward to another fantastic summer!
Oakland Yard has been a valuable resource for parents to keep their kids active throughout the summer months. We offer the most flexible schedule of attending our programs so that you only need to enroll when you need our services. Our attention to your children far exceeds the value you'd find in many other summer options.
We have transitioned to a new, online Camp Management System. This will allow you to continue to register online, but it includes several added features. We are now able to accept recurring payments if you choose this option. We can communicate via e-mail to very specific groups of parents. Additionally, all documents that had to be submitted on paper in the past are now online (medical form, etc) and we will no longer have a need for passports!
We realize your children are paramount. That's why Oakland Yard strives to maintain a consistent staff from year to year. All staffers have Michigan State Police background checks performed prior to hiring.
We believe that all kids should have access to summer camps!
This year, Oakland Yard is partnering with the McLaren Oakland Foundation to obtain scholarships for underserved or less fortunate children.
