We're Closed But Planning For The Future

Following Govenor Mike DeWine's mandated closure of K-!2 schools in response to COVID-19, Orange Community Education & Recreation classes, activities, events and 
all facilities are closed through June 30. 

We are currently planning small-group, in-person activities for district residents only beginning in July.

Our new summer Recreation Guide will be available here on May 31 with registration beginning June 1. Read more here.

While our dedicated staff members work remotely, we are here to answer your questions. Please view our Frequently Asked Questions or email us at

Recreation Commission


The Orange Community Education & Recreation Department creates a variety of opportunities for citizen involvement through its Commission, through various advisory councils and through focus groups.

The Orange Community Education & Recreation Commission is this department's advisory council providing support and feedback so that a varied range of recreational and educational activities may be provided to area residents in accordance with the department's mission and the school district's mission. Commission at large and governmental representatives act as community liaisons by sharing community feedback with the department's Director and leadership team and by encouraging the broadest possible involvement of area residents in the department's programs, projects and services.

The Commission meets monthly on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm at the Pepper Pike Learning Center. Residents are encouraged to attend Commission Meetings or consider filling periodic representative vacancies.  Feel free to contact any of the following Commission members with ideas and questions.
