"WHERE THE FISH EAT HOTDOTS AND THE KIDS HAVE FUN!"

About


Eight Acres Camp is located in Bixby, Oklahoma and offers Summer Day Camp to children who have completed kindergarten - 11 years old. Eight Acres Camp features a stocked fishing pond, basketball court, playground, the famous dirt pile and an air-conditioned camp house.

We accommodate flexible schedules and you only pay for the days your child is scheduled to attend camp.

Your children will be excited to come to Eight Acres Camp every day to get dirty and have fun! They can fish and catch frogs around our one-acre stocked fishing pond. Art time promises lots of wonderful creations. Kids love spending time under our many shade trees, playing games like dodge ball, kickball or just digging in the famous camp dirt pile. All of this, in addition to frequent field trips which include swimming, bowling, skating,  movies, or a number of other fun activities. Your children will be begging to come back day after day. Eight Acres was established in 2002 and is staffed by certified elementary teachers and experienced elementary school teacher's assistants.
