Camp Oh-Pea-Dee returns this summer


The Oregon Park District is excited to announce Camp Oh-Pea-Dee will be returning this summer of 2022.

Summer camp will be offered each week that the Oregon School District is on summer break, except for Memorial Day and the week of 4th of July.

The first week of camp will begin on May 23 and run through Aug. 12. Camp times are 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Late pickup will result in a $15 fee every 15 minutes after 5 p.m.

Camp is open for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in the fall of 2022.

Camp Oh-Pea-Dee focuses on fun, peer interaction, planned and themed activities, swimming and exploring our local parks and businesses.

All IDPH and CDC guidelines will be adhered to at the time of camp. Sanitation protocols will be in place to ensure a safe environment for both the campers and staff.

Camp will be held in our new ET room at Oregon Elementary School. This move will provide the campers with plenty of space for crafts and activities, a dedicated gym for games, use of the elementary school playground, as well as within walking distance of Park West. Since we are housed within a school, safety remains our top priority at the Oregon Park District.

Participants will also enjoy local field trips, parks, the splash pad, and exploring Oregon.

Camp OPD will be limited to 25 campers each week. Parents can sign children up for as many weeks as they like with an easy deposit of 10% down per week to secure their spot for the summer. Registration includes the entire week. Campers may choose to attend fewer days, but the cost will be the entire week. Campers can cancel up to 11 days prior to the enrolled camp week for a refund minus their 10% deposit. A waiting list will be available if a camp week is filled.

Registration will open on Monday, March 7, both online and by phone at 8 a.m. Our new system will allow parents to either pay in full at time of registration or reserve their week with a 10% non-refundable deposit for each week booked. The registration fee, less the 10% deposit, will be due 10 days prior to the registered week using our automatic payment plan.

Current dates, prices and deadlines are listed below. These are subject to change dependent on OCUSD School Schedule. This summer we will be taking a Road Trip Across America with a new destination each week. The week will include fun facts, games and field trips to correlate with the destination.
