Summer Camps on the River Camp

128 Oakland Farm Way
Keswick, VA 22974




Oakland’s founder, Margaret G. Shepherd, was a teacher for more than 60 years. After serving as an elementary school teacher, high school assistant principal and operating her own private school for children in grades K-2, Mrs. Shepherd started a summer camp and remedial school for children with learning disabilities on her family farm in Central Virginia in 1950. Students from across the south flocked to the Oakland Farm Camp & School where children learned how to read. She later added a year-round learning disabilities boarding school program as well as a day school program.
