What to Expect

Have you been anxiously awaiting your O.W.L. letter? Do strange things tend to happen when you’re around?

O.W.L. Camp is your chance to geek out with other Harry Potter fans and attend Hogwarts for a day, circa 2022. Be prepared to experiment, learn, connect, play, and create.

Submit your application by March 31 to discover if you are a Muggle-born Witch or Wizard. Selected students will receive an O.W.L. letter in May with instructions for finalizing the application. Failure to finalize the application by May 31 will void your O.W.L. letter.

Upon arrival at O.W.L. Camp, you will be invited through Platform 9 ¾, visit the Trolley cart, and exit onto the Hogwarts grounds. The sorting hat will determine your house, and you will stay with your house throughout the day attending classes. Classes may include topics such as Potions, Herbology, Care of Magical Creatures, etc. You will have opportunities to win or lose house points, interact with characters, and meet new friends.

We solemnly swear you won’t forget your day at O.W.L. Camp!
