Register now for OPEF’s summer BASE Camp!


Looking for a great summer camp for your 1st-8th grader (as of Fall 2017)? We offer awesome camps right in your backyard! BASE Camp runs four weeks from June 19 to July 14 (no camp July 4). Choose from a wide selection of one-week and two-week morning, afternoon, and full-day camp sessions. Once you’ve reviewed the camp descriptions and narrowed down your selections, go to our registration website.

What’s NEW this year?

  • Our 25 new camps are marked below with an asterisk! With almost 60 camps in total, there’s something for every kid and every interest.
  • For busy parents, we’ve added an Early Drop-Off (8-9 am) option for incoming 1st-5th graders.
  • Now offering payment plans! Paying for summer camp in one lump sum can be a challenge. That’s why we’re now offering payment plans. And qualifying D97 families can apply for our scholarship program. Want to know more about scholarships? Contact the BASE Camp director, Lindsay Bruce.
  • Note that camps for 1st-5th graders are now going to be held at Longfellow Elementary School. Holmes will be closed for construction this summer, so we’ve moved to Longfellow!

What’s the SAME this year?

  • Rave-worthy camp content focused on hands-on projects covering STEAM (science, tech, engineering, arts and math). Did you know that 98% of 2016 BASE Camp parents said they would recommend BASE Camp to a friend?
  • Fun, memory-making interactions with small groups led by passionate, experienced and friendly teachers.
  • Open to ALL kids, not just D97 students — so invite a friend!
