Oak Mountain State Park
Note: Please note that Kidcam at Oak Mountain full for the summer. We are not accepting any more campers.
For campers ages 5-13, Kidcam Summer Day Camp thrives in the heart of Alabama’s Oak Mountain State Park.
Kidcam’s weekly activities promote fun, fitness, friendship and creativity. Campers celebrate a different theme each week, while incorporating a curriculum filled with sports, creative arts, STEM, team building games, life skills, hiking, talent shows, swimming and water play, along with 50 years of memorable Kidcam traditions.
Camp Director, Randle Cassady, says, “Kidcam at Oak Mountain is a very unique summer camp. Campers get to utilize the whole park for various activities. During the summer, you can find our campers on the trails exploring, swimming in the lake, visiting the petting farm, paddle boating or at the Wildlife center learning about native birds in Alabama.”
Our Home Base is the air-conditioned Oak Room near Main Park Office. Note: our location will be adjusted inside the park during the two weeks of the World Games.
