Eight Acres is an outdoor-based Summer Day Camp/Out of School Time program for elementary age children. We accept children who have completed kindergarten - 11 years old for summer camp and children enrolled in kindergarten - 11 years old for school year camps. We are not staffed or equipped to provide for children with severe emotional or behavioral issues.
Billing is based on the days your child is scheduled to attend camp. It is the parents’ responsibility to change scheduled days to vacation days on the Sandbox Parent Portal. Cancellations must be placed on the Sandbox Parent Portal by 7pm to avoid being charged for the next day. Notify Eight Acres through text, 918.640.2493, email or message through Sandbox Parent Portal to request additional days be added to your child's schedule.
