Opportunity to grow

“As a staff member, OVY Camp has given me the opportunity to grow as an individual and also role model. I have learned a handful things throughout the years that I've helped out with the camp and the experience is always memorable. With a great team of staff members and volunteers, we do our best to teach the kids lifelong skills such as teamwork, while still having fun. OVY is not just a camp but also a community where smiles and laughter are contagious. Those smiles are what make me want to come back each year and give the kids the best summer of their lives."
