The athletic department at OPRF announced Monday it was cancelling all the summer swim and sports camps for local kids through incoming 8th graders. 

“This was an incredibly difficult decision to make, as this type of community activity is important to us as a school district,” read the announcement as it made clear COVID-19 would preclude the programs.

The camps, always popular with local children, were cancelled early so families can make alternative plans. The swim camps include children from age 4-10.

Still to be decided is whether summer camps for OPRF students will be held. “We are still reviewing plans for our High School Camp Program (incoming 9-12th grade students) and final decisions have yet to be determined.”
