What are the sleeping accommodation like?

Bunk rooms:
You’ll have a true summer camp experience! You’ll sleep in a camp cabin with 8-10 campers.
Each cabin includes:

  • Bunk style twin beds with deluxe sleeping pad. Blankets, sheets, pillow, pillowcase, bath and beach towels are provided
  • A shared bathroom with two toilet stalls, two showers, two sinks and lots of cubbies for storage of personal items
  • Cabins are not insulated, but each has a ceiling fan to keep the air circulating and comfortable

Will I get to choose who is in my cabin?
While we encourage you to make many new friends, we know that coming to camp and meeting new people can be a little scary. When registering, you will have the opportunity to choose one other camper as your “Cabin Buddy.” If they choose you too, we’ll do our very best to make sure you are both in the same cabin. You’ll have the security of knowing one person, but still have the opportunity to meet new people!

Will Covid vaccinations be required?
Yes, all campers will be required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Proof of vaccinations will be required to join us. In addition we will follow all safety protocols that are required at the time of camp by Camp IHC, i.e. onsite testing

What kinds of activities can I expect at Birdcamp?
When coming to Birdcamp, it’s YOUR weekend! You can fill it with as many or as few activities as you like. Everything is optional! You can treat your weekend like a training camp or like a vacation – it’s totally up to you!

Running:

  • You will have the opportunity to not run or run up to twice daily - whatever you wish.
  • A supported long run on Sunday morning with hydration and nutrition aid stations

How will I sign up for sessions?
Once the agenda is set, you will be emailed an invitation to download the Birdcamp 2022 event app. From there, you can sign up for sessions that you’d like to attend and build the perfect weekend agenda for YOU!

I’ve got dietary restrictions, what will meals be like? Will I have enough to eat?
When registering, you will complete a camp questionnaire that will allow you to provide information about dietary restrictions.
The camp will provide vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options at every meal. If you have a specific allergy, please let us know and we’ll make sure to let the camp staff know. They are pros at accommodating all dietary restrictions!

Can I bring food with me?

  • You should have plenty provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own snacks if you like! (Food should be stored in sealed containers)
  • There is a fridge on site where you can store items that need refrigeration. (Priority will be given to moms needing to refrigerate breast milk)

Is there a place for nursing mothers to pump and store breastmilk?
Yes, we will have a comfortable location for mothers to pump as well as a designated refrigerator to store breastmilk.

Are all paces actually welcome?
Yes! ALL paces are welcome and no bird will be left behind. We’ll have run leaders and sweepers on each run as well as vehicles on the long run route to monitor, restock supplies and pick anyone up who may need it.

The registration fee is nonrefundable and I’m worried I might get injured between now and August!
We like to believe that you won’t get injured, but if you do please come to camp anyway! Birdcamp is about so much more than running! To be honest, that is probably what you will spend the least amount of time doing. There are so many non-running options, that we highly recommend you come even if injured.
The weekend will include so many options for movement including swimming, kayaking, SUPing, cycling, yoga, etc. You can even just spend your weekend, resting, rehabbing, supporting teammates and getting support from teammates.

Will I have the chance to purchase or check out any new Oiselle items?
Yes! Our store team will be bringing their magic Birdcamp. There will be lots to try on and purchase! Maybe even some brand new items not yet available online.

I am new to the Volée and I don’t have much Oiselle clothing, can I still come?
Yes! Birdcamp is about SO MUCH MORE than clothes. Feel free to bring the clothing you love, that makes you feel confident and comfortable!

What should I pack?
We’ll provide a recommended packing list as camp approaches – stay tuned!

Do I need to bring linens and towels?
No, you don’t need to bring linens and towels. Blankets, sheets, pillow, pillowcase, bath and beach towels will be provided!

Will there be cell signal and WIFI?
Yes…and no. Cell signal will be limited and carrier dependent. There is WIFI at camp which you will have access to. The closer you are to the dining hall, the better it works. If you need access to a landline for emergencies, there will be one available to you.
