REGISTRATION

Camp OTX does not anticipate shortening or ceasing camp operations for any reason. Camp families should anticipate full camp operations for summer 2021.

Many questions revolve around pre-camp planning and summer schedules.  Camp OTX will not require a pre-camp quarantine.  With regard to Covid-19, the Camp OTX medical team is staying abreast of the latest fact-based Covid-19 information.  We are committed to staying agile and adapt to the latest medical information and will be in contact with our camp families regarding their camper’s sessions.

Camp OTX offers installment payment plans only through My OTX. Installment payment plans are an easy way to budget and pay camp tuition. Enrolling in an installment plan online offers convenience and flexibility. All registered campers must be paid in full at the date of the last installment as a condition of final enrollment.

Families may register their campers, pay the required deposits, and complete the required application online by clicking on the “Register” graphic found throughout this website.

When registering their campers, families will create an online “My OTX” account, which will allow families to manage their camper information, make payments, save Store items and Summer Photos for future purchase, and much more.

All campers are required to purchase low-cost, no-fault, major medical insurance. The fee for this coverage is minimal, but purchase is a requirement for enrollment at Camp OTX.

Many campers desire to experience Camp OTX for more than one session. We will not be offering programming between sessions. If you would like to register for multiple sessions, please plan to pick your camper up on Closing Day and bring them back to camp on Opening Day of the next session. 

Boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 14 are eligible for enrollment. All applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is a limited number of available spots each session. Acceptance requires a fully completed application and accompanied by the $225.00 camp deposit and registration fee.

Upon acceptance of a camper’s application, he or she is placed in the proper grouping and cabin according to age, development, school grade and session. Every effort is made to place campers according to their cabin preference, but final placement is at the sole discretion of the Cabin Placement Coordinator.  All requests must be submitted in writing and must be made by both campers two weeks prior to the start of the campers’ session.
Requested cabin mates must be no more than 12 months apart in age. No more than four campers from the same school or social group will be placed in the same cabin. 

Also, please understand that clear communication with a requested cabin mate is very important. We recommend that all parents involved openly communicate with one another so that all campers may have the best possible start to their Camp OTX experience. To best serve our camp families, the Cabin Placement Coordinator may disclose cabin placement information in order to answer cabin placement questions.

One of our core values at Camp OTX is Friendship-learning how to be a friend, make a friend and keep a friend. Making new friends is a rich component of the cabin experience and many of our campers choose to not make requests for this reason. We encourage campers to attend without concern for cabin requests, but we will make every effort to accommodate cabin requests in compliance with our cabin placement policies.

Upon acceptance of a camper’s application, he or she is assigned to one of two teams. Team assignments are completely random, family members with a team affiliation may be considered when team assignments are being made.
NO TEAM REQUESTS ARE PERMITTED OR CONSIDERED WHEN ASSIGNING TEAMS.
Once a camper is assigned to a team, he or she is a member of that team for life.

TRAVEL

There are four options for traveling to and from Camp OTX:

1) Arrive by automobile.

2) Ride a Camp OTX sponsored chartered bus.

3) Fly into San Antonio International Airport to then be transported to camp via camp shuttle.

4) Fly into Kerrville Municipal Airport, located 36 miles from camp, to then be transported to camp via camp shuttle.

Parents are encouraged to personally pick their campers up at the close of camp; however, campers may travel home to select cities via bus or be transported to San Antonio International Airport to board commercial flights home. Transportation fees are charged for these services.

Charter buses run to and from Camp OTX for most sessions from the following cities when the demand is sufficient:

  • Houston
  • Austin
  • San Antonio

Fee for the bus is based on the city of departure.

Campers who wish to fly either to or from camp via commercial airline can be met at or transported to  San Antonio International Airport. 

Camp OTX offers fully staffed luxury charter bus service from several cities in Texas when demand is sufficient. Several of our camp families take advantage of this extremely economical and convenient travel option. Also, it is a great way to kick-off the camp experience as campers meet new friends and connect with the OTX staff on the trip.

In the case of a flight delay, of course our staff members will supervise, monitor and assist the parent or guardian in making alternative arrangements for each camper. With regard to inbound flight delays, we ask that each parent or guardian notify the Camp OTX office as soon as they are aware of any change in schedule.

Unaccompanied Minors
While Unaccompanied Minor (UA) policies vary by airline, typically they apply to children under the age of 12 flying alone or not traveling with an accompanying passenger over the age of 12. It is the parent or guardians responsibility to understand and comply with UA policies based on the airline of choice, including payment of any and all UA fees. In most cases, airlines require contact information for the pick-up designee at the arrival airport. Information regarding the Camp OTX Staff designee is sent out approximately two weeks in advance and can otherwise be found by contacting the Camp OTX office (assignments typically finalized in May).

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Camp OTX will require screening prior to camp. We understand that camp families are moving forward with their summer plans including travel and family activities. As we move closer to normal, we ask that our families partner with us in making sure we are protecting each other. We know that testing is a very useful tool for helping to keep camp safe. All screening requirements, including testing, will be communicated three (3) weeks prior your camper’s arrival at Camp OTX. The Covid information portal on your My OTX Dashboard will open in May.

As designated by the CDC, summer camp staff are eligible for vaccines. We also know that many colleges and universities are asking their students to prepare for vaccinations as a requirement to return to in-person instruction in the fall. Our recruiting staff and medical team have already assembled a comprehensive vaccine resource guide for our incoming summer staff. 

The Health Center is staffed by a primary care provider and at least 2 registered nurses. Additional physicians and a full-service medical clinic are located in Bandera, 8 miles away. It is the camp policy to notify parents of an illness, accident or injury in the event the camper is seen by the primary care provider. Should medical bills be incurred, parents are fully responsible for payment.

Camp OTX will facilitate the mandatory service of pre-packing campers’ medications in preparation for camp. Camp families must send their medication(s) directly to Camp OTX. There is a fee for this service.

All pills/capsules (prescription and non-prescription) taken on a routine basis will be individually packaged and sorted according to day and time of administration. If prescription medication is not in pill/capsule form (liquids, eye drops, topical, etc.) they will be dispensed as indicated.

All medication must be delivered to camp at least 3 weeks prior to the camper’s arrival.

Campers that have any type of allergy, whether food, drug, environmental or other, must notify Camp OTX via the Health Form or in writing before the camper’s session begins. All allergies are entered into the camper’s database. The “Camp OTX Allergy Form” must be filled out indicating the allergen, the reaction and the treatment if exposure occurs. If the camper has a potentially life threatening allergy, a black band will be placed on their wrist on their arrival, with their allergy written on the band. Food allergies must be discussed with the Food Services Director in advance of the session and alternatives planned for the session. Supplemental foods are usually requested.

Camp OTX takes water safety very seriously and has developed water safety policies in accordance with guidelines issued both by the American Red Cross and the American Camping Association.

Before participating in any water activity at Camp OTX, each camper must complete a mandatory swim test supervised by our waterpark staff. At that time, all campers are fitted for life jackets under the supervision of the waterpark staff. Life jackets are color-coded by size. Campers are required to wear a life jackets when participating in all waterfront activities. The only exception is limited to the waterslide area where the camp ratio of swimmers to lifeguard never exceeds 2 to 1 and the pool. If a camper fails the swim test, he/she will be required to wear a life jacket at all times.

Campers who pass the swim test receive a permanent “swim bracelet,” which assist the lifeguards in assessing swim ability in each of our areas. Those who do not pass the swim test do not receive a swim bracelet and must wear a life jacket when participating in all waterfront activities, including the water slides. In addition each camper is issued a “swim tag” that is required for admittance into our main waterpark area. Camp OTX implements check in/check out system in the waterpark area to assist in camper monitoring and water safety.

Camp OTX lifeguards are certified by the American Red Cross. In addition. Backboards and AED’s are both available to the waterpark staff should a situation arise requiring their use.

Camp OTX reviews its water safety policies on an annual basis.

Sun Protection is taken very seriously at Camp OTX. In addition to dispensation and application of sunscreen prior to participation in all waterpark activities, Camp OTX trains its staff to encourage sun protection through consistent application of sunscreen. Protective clothing, such as UV rated swim shirts, are also encouraged. While Camp OTX encourages campers to bring their own sun protection, sunscreen is available in most program areas and UV rated protective clothing is available at the camp store.

In addition, Camp OTX employs a monitoring system through its restriction protocols that assist summer staff in identifying and caring for campers who are particularly sensitive to sun exposure.

Camp OTX strives to provide delicious food options that kids enjoy, while recognizing the importance of nutrition and healthy eating. At every meal, campers have the option to eat from the main hot food line or an always healthy breakfast bar in the morning or soup, salad and potato bar at lunch and dinner. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fresh fruit are also available during most meals.

All activity, medical and dietary restrictions are reviewed once submitted during registration. Campers with chronic medical conditions including, but not necessarily limited to, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, heart conditions, etc. are welcome at Camp OTX as long as the camper can thrive within the Essential Functions defined. Each condition is considered on a case by case basis and final acceptance is at the sole discretion of the camp director in consultation with its medical team.

In order to make reasonable efforts to protect the public health of our entire camp population, Immunizations are mandatory for camp attendance – no exemptions or exceptions.

In order to make reasonable efforts to protect the health and safety of each individual camper, only emergency medications (inhalers or epi pens) or new prescriptions (newly prescribed in the week prior to attendance) can be brought on opening day. There is a $75 handling fee for any other medications brought on opening day, other than these exceptions. In addition, Camp OTX cannot guarantee the proper dispensation of medications within the first 48 hours of receipt. Thank you for your cooperation.

Each camper will receive a unique, individualized morning class schedule based on the camper’s indicated preferences. All classes are a first-come, first-served basis. Each camper will be able to change his or her class schedule upon arrival at camp. Age and gender restrictions for some activities may apply.

Each scheduled Morning Activity generally meets once daily, Monday through Thursday, with a total of three activity periods each day

All areas of camp are staffed and open recreationally every afternoon during our camp-wide free time known as Stampede. Campers are able to participate in as many activities as they’d like. Qualified staff is assigned to supervise each activity, while those not assigned are free to take kids to different activities of the camper’s choosing. Organized Tournaments and Clinics are advertised and offered each Stampede allowing campers to benefit from instruction in a specific areas, as well as participate alone or with a group in structured play.

Stampede is often referred to as the camper’s favorite time of the day because all activities at Camp OTX are open, with campers having the opportunity to do “whatever they want” at this time. Stampede lasts about 2 hours each day.

Campers can pack in a duffel, plastic, or hard side trunk no more than 15” tall (to slide easily under the bunk). Wheels on trunks are not recommended.

No regulation uniform is required. Clothing displaying profanity or inappropriate content is prohibited. Campers should not bring backless shirts, halter tops, crop tops, or any low cut, tight, or revealing apparel.

Camp OTX firmly believes that all campers deserve to have a premier camp experience, and any camper behavior that negatively affects the experience of others should be addressed in a decisive and timely fashion. Camp OTX has developed a system of Camper Monitoring designed to prevent, identify and resolve camper behavior issues. Components of Camper Monitoring include:

Monitoring of Camper Behavior
Camp OTX employs a system of camper monitoring that involves cabin counselors, senior summer staff (“Top Staff” – older Camp OTX staff who oversee a small group of cabins), and Permanent Staff. One of the primary goals of our camper monitoring system is to be in a position to quickly identify and resolve any camper misbehavior. Our cabin counselors are the first line of “defense,” but all staff members, including the Top and Permanent Staff, are trained to work together to attempt to eliminate misbehavior of any kind.

Permanent Staff
Certain members of the Camp OTX Permanent Staff are tasked with designing, implementing and evaluating our camper monitoring program. These Permanent Staff members try to stay current on recent trends and thoughts on preventing, identifying and resolving behavioral issues, including bullying. In addition, these Permanent Staff are proactive during the summer in responding to behavioral issues that arise among campers. As issues come to their attention, whether through formal or informal channels, one or more of these Camp OTX Permanent Staff members becomes involved.

Training of Summer Staff
Camp OTX trains our Summer Staff in efforts to help them recognize, prevent and resolve camper misbehavior issues, such as bullying. This includes training prior to camp, during our Staff Orientation (required of all summer staff member with very few exceptions), as well as ongoing training and evaluation during summer.

Camper Supervision Rules
Camp OTX has developed policies and guidelines aimed at adequate supervision and monitoring of campers. For example, we go to great lengths to avoid situations where campers are not directly supervised by staff members at all times. Since most campers who bully or otherwise misbehave tend to do so in the absence of adult supervision, we strive to eliminate those situations.

Opening Day Meetings
On the first night of camp, Camp OTX conducts age- and gender-specific meetings with all campers. During these opening day meetings, a member of the Permanent Staff reviews our behavioral policies and guidelines and outlines the consequences of misbehavior (ranging from a meeting with Permanent Staff, to loss of camp privileges, to expulsion from camp in extreme cases). A Permanent Staff member will also review the formal and informal ways a child may report misbehavior by another camper or staff member. We want campers to feel safe and empowered to stand up for themselves, and to know they have options for dealing with difficult situations.

One-on-One Meetings and Daily Checks
We conduct “Camper Evaluations” once per week, during which members of the Top Staff meet with the counselors in their assigned cabins and documents a formalized report for each camper. The primary purpose of this meeting is to identify any behavioral issues that might be causing problems in the cabin. These reports are then reviewed by members of the Permanent Staff. In addition, Top Staff members are tasked with informally checking with each of their assigned cabins each day. Again, this helps keep us informed as to how the campers in a cabin are getting along, and if the counselors are having any difficulty managing behavioral issues.

Camp Moms serve as a mom away from home and strive to help make the experience of sending a child to camp as smooth and worry-free as possible for both the camper and parents. Camp Moms have a network in place that enables them to meet camper’s needs, address issues such as homesickness, and give 1st time camper status reports to camp families a few days into their camper’s session.

Cabins at Camp OTX are arranged by age group and gender. The typical cabin arrangement is 9-12 campers with 2-3 counselors. The air conditioned cabins are comfortable and modern and have in-cabin restroom and shower facilities. Campers sleep in bunk beds with deluxe mattresses; each sleeping area has a shelf and access to an electrical outlet (for fans or clocks). 

We love birthdays at Camp OTX! Campers with birthdays while at camp are celebrated in many ways. They start their day with an announcement and celebration at Good Morning OTX and their entire cabin gets a birthday bag with decorations, hats, and other fun items. The birthday boy or girl receives a Stampede Fast Pass and a homemade cake at lunch to share with the cabin while the whole camp sings “Happy Birthday” to the camper! Additional birthday packages to send to your camper on their special day are available for purchase via the Camp OTX Store.
