When will I be notified if I have been accepted or wait listed for camp?

All notifications will be received before the end of March. You will be notified by email and all details about camp registration will be available in your OWjL Application portal at that time. 

When do I come to camp?

  • Week 1 Campers: Sunday, June 6, 2021
  • Week 2 Campers: Sunday, June 13, 2021
  • Week 3 Campers: Sunday, June 20, 2021

Registration begins at 6 p.m. at Hayes Hall dormitory. After registration, there will be a short orientation for campers and their families at 7 p.m. on the patio. Campers should eat dinner at home on the day of registration, as the first OWjL meal is breakfast Monday morning.

What grade do I choose?

Please choose the grade level you are in when you apply for camp. So when you're applying in December or January, please choose the grade you are currently in at that time.

I can’t find the information you sent me for camp. Can I get another copy?

All information regarding camp applications and registration is available in the OWjL Application portal. If you cannot find the information, please email the OWjL Camp office with your request at owjl@owu.edu.

When do I pick my child up from camp?

Pick up your camper in the same place you dropped them off, Hayes Hall. Pick up will be from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. You will meet your camper on the patio in front of Hayes Hall. Once campers have checked out with their counselor you may gather their belongings and take them home.

Can I send mail to my camper?

Campers love to receive mail! Please be sure OWjL Camp is on the envelope or package. Please use the format below:

Camper’s Name
OWjL Camp - OWU

Can I call my camper during the week?

We request that parents not call students. Students are not to use the telephones, and cell phones and electronics are not permitted at camp.

Who do I call in an emergency?

The OWjL Camp Office can be contacted at 740-368-3939. For emergencies during camp, an after-hours phone number will be given to you when you drop your child off at camp.

Do you accept roommate requests?

We do not accept roommate requests. We strive to have the campers make new friends and have new experiences.

What if I have a special housing or accommodation need?

If you have special housing or accommodation needs, please let us know the circumstances when you register your child in the OWjL Application portal. Even last-minute updates will be available to our staff. 

I don’t live or attend school in one of the counties listed on the registration form. Can I still apply for OWjL Camp?

Applicants must live in or attend school in one of the 10 central Ohio Counties we service. These are Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Pickaway, and Union.
