Camp Oh Pea Dee


Welcome to Camp Oh Pea Dee; where safety and fun are a priority.  Our summer camp focuses on emphasizing fun, peer interaction, planned activities, and personal growth.  Participants will have field trips each Wednesday, swimming each Tuesday and Thursday, and visit the splash pad each Friday.  New this year, we will also have a summer reading program through the Oregon Public Library, join all three Brown Bag Concerts on the Courthouse Lawn and be participating in free pop-up events throughout the community! On top of this, we will be playing at our local parks, engaging in many sports and outdoor games, themed crafts, and so much more!  Contact Amanda Zimmermann at 815-732-3101 or with any questions.  We look forward to having your camper in the program!
