Spring Break Camp
Camp is not just for summer!
Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma offers many programs outside of our summer camp, Camp DaKaNi, that allow kids to experience the wonder, challenges, and self-discovery that can only be found outdoors! Holiday Outdoor Camp (HOC) is held during fall and spring school breaks. Each HOC week has a science related theme to help continue to learning process during the break. Campers will also participate in traditional camp activities like rock climbing, zip line, fishing, boating, ga-ga ball, carpet ball, field games, and more!
We expect this session to fill fast, so reserve your spot today!
For this week at camp we're taking it back to when the dinosaurs roamed our camp! Campers will become dinosaur hunters and help us find the lost dinosaurs throughout camp. The activities created for this week will all follow a dinosaur theme, but who doesn't love that! Here are some examples of activities your camper will enjoy once enrolled:
Fizzy Dinosaur Eggs: Experience the fun of hatching your own dinosaur egg using vinegar and baking soda
DIY Fossils: Have the opportunity to experience making your very own dinosaur fossil
Egg, Chicken, Dinosaur: What came first, the egg or the dinosaur? This energizing take on rock, paper, scissors will break down the true order!
what we've done
It's a snap! Just click the "Register Now" button on this page to begin the application for your child. If you've never registered with Camp Fire before, you'll need to create a new login. Or, login to populate historical data.
When registering, you will be asked to complete the following forms, which are due one week before the start of your camper’s session. These forms must be uploaded to our CampMinder system before your child can attend camp:
Current Shot Records
Current photos (optional, but this helps our staff easily identify campers and authorized adults)
Once you've enrolled in camp, the Parent Handbook has all the information you need, such as what to bring, what to wear, and what to expect. Some information, such as drop-off and pick-up information, varies between programs, so be sure to review the handbook carefully for the program in which your camper is enrolled.
During camp, campers will have the opportunity to visit our Camp Store to look for the perfect vintage Camp DaKaNi t-shirts or cool branded items, like bracelets, water bottles, mugs, bandanas, and hats!
Items range in price from $1-15 and to avoid exchanging money at camp, campers can access their funds online. Parents/guardians can add funds at any time, but most find it easier to do this at the time of registration. To add money to your child's account after registration, simply log in to CampMinder and follow the prompts!
Camp DaKaNi is located at 3309 East Hefner Road in Oklahoma City. Cars will enter through Gate #1 (black gate with a white sign.) For more information specific to your camper's session, please review the Parent Handbook.
Full satisfactory background checks are required of all Camp Fire staff and volunteers. Campers will be in the presence of more than one person at all times and will never be left alone or be alone with one adult.
All camp gates will be closed and locked outside of the morning and afternoon car line, wherein only the entrance and exit gate will be open.
Only Gate 1 will remain open during camp hours for staff and visitor use. All visitors must enter the main camp office and will be accompanied by a Camp Fire staff member if entering or touring camp.
Extended Safety Precautions
The health of our campers, counselors, staff members, and families is our highest priority while planning our upcoming in-person events. Please see the safety precautions we are currently planning to implement on our new COVID-19 Info Page. We will continue to monitor state and local authorities’ guidelines for mitigation levels in our area to adjust these precautions as recommended.
To prevent loss or damage, campers are not allowed to have cell phones at camp. If there is an urgent issue where you need to speak with your child while camp is in session, please call (405) 478-5646 and a staff member can page your camper’s group counselor directly and immediately.
If there is a nonurgent change of plans (pickup person, etc.) of which you need to make Camp Fire and/or your child aware, please call (405) 478-5646 and a staff member would be happy to relay the message to your camper’s group counselor.
If canceled two weeks prior to the sessions the camper is enrolled, we only charge a $25 cancellation fee per camper session, and all other funds are refunded to the original payment method. Due to the popularity of our camp and the challenge of filling spaces, no refunds will be issued less than two weeks prior to the sessions the camper is enrolled. In cases of homesickness, illness, dismissal, or voluntary withdrawal, no refunds will be issued.
