Welcome to Oak Park Life Skills Retreat Page. We hope that this experience proves to be both rewarding and enlightening to you. The retreat will be held at Camp Hilltop/Hess Kramer in Malibu.

Please let me know if you have any special dietary needs
You may leave all of your belongings in H3 when you arrive at school on Wednesday.. Or, if you do not have a 5th or 6th period that day, you may return home to gather your belongings. Just be certain you are in the parking lot before 3:10 p.m.
Do not bring any alcohol or illegal drugs. Smoking on retreat is prohibited as well. If you bring radios, walkmans, or cards, you will be asked to put these items away at the retreat location.
I cannot stress the prohibition against drugs or alcohol enough. Anyone bringing alcohol or drugs will be sent home from the retreat and will put his/her graduation in jeopardy.
You will not need a watch or alarm clock so please do not bring one with you. Additionally, please do not bring cell phones. This only takes away from the retreat experience.
Please be aware that confidentiality will be stressed on the retreat, however, the leaders will follow the reporting policy for child abuse as outlined in the Oak Park handbook.
Please be in the parking lot no later than 3:10 on Wednesday as the buses will depart by 3:30. On Saturday, you will return to Oak Park sometime after 5:00 p.m., depending on traffic.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. I am happy you chose to be part of the program and hope that you enjoy your experience.
