Oasis at LIU Post utilizes the incredible collection of indoor and outdoor facilities located on the Post campus, including air conditioned classrooms, an indoor swimming facility, and a state-of-the-art theater to create an amazing summer experience for our campers. Teens have the option to go on day or overnight excursions or become CITs.
Children entering the 6th and 7th grade can choose to join our Junior Teen Travel program! Our explorers will have the best of both worlds- traditional day camp and the option to travel to various exciting local destinations twice a week (for an additional weekly cost). Junior Teen Travel campers will spend 2 days a week on trips, and 3 days on location at camp. During their time at camp they can participate in our tradiitonal day camp activities- swim instruction, special events, sports, arts and crafts, nature and all that we offer at LIU Post. It is truly the best of both worlds, camp and travel, as well as a true Upper Camp experience for our older campers.
The Teen Travel program, for students entering 8th and 9th grades, gives teens the opportunity to take unique trips while forming lifelong friendships. Teen Travelers embark on outbound trips each to a myriad of exciting locations: theme parks, interactive exhibits, Broadway shows, sporting events, and more.
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) Program is for energetic and motivated teenagers (ages 14 to 16; entering 9th grade through entering 11th grade) who want to learn and develop leadership skills working with children in a camp setting, while still getting to enjoy all the fun activities and friendships of summer camp. CITs develop leadership skills through direct supervision, regular conferences with leadership staff, and a hands-on experience engaging with campers. The program is open only to returning Oasis campers.
