In 2004, Oak View Elementary School was one of the first in the county to offer a kindergarten summer bridge camp program funded though First 5 San Joaquin County. The camp is a weeklong session that allows incoming kindergarten students to meet their teachers and peers, as well as become familiar with basic rules and procedures.
“The bridge camp is very helpful to our incoming kindergarten students, especially the ones who have not attended preschool.
