Oak Acres Childrens Camp
PROVIDING A PLATFORM FOR CHILDREN TO LEARN NEW SKILLS
Oak Acres Children’s Camp was founded in Murray River in 1971 by Sister Mary Henry of the Catholic Family Services Bureau. She purchased 180 acres of land from the Bonnell family and it was mutually agreed that this land would be used solely as a summer camp for deserving Island children in need. The necessary buildings were constructed and the camp operated sporadically until finally closing down in 1989.
