What to Expect

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

Overview PDF

O.W.L. Camp is a free, one-day STEAM-based wizarding camp for youth ages 11–18 with a County Library card. It's your chance to geek out with other Harry Potter fans and attend magical wizarding school for a day. Be prepared to experiment, learn, connect, play, and create.

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

Upon arrival at O.W.L. Camp, you will be invited through platform 9 ¾, visit the Trolley cart, and exit onto the school grounds. You will be sorted into your class, and you will stay with your class throughout the day. Classes may include topics such as Potions, Magizoology, Astronomy, etc. You will have opportunities to win or lose class points, interact with characters, and meet new friends.

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