Orange Community Education and Recreation's comprehensive Summer Camp program provides a safe and supportive environment for kids to explore new interests, get creative, make friends and learn - all on the Orange Schools campus. Camps for students in preschool, elementary school, middle school and high school begin in June.
The Orange campus features a kid-friendly outdoor leisure pool with a slide and waterfalls, groomed sports fields, playgrounds, tennis courts and hiking trails set in wooded surroundings. Indoor facilities include an indoor pool with a separate diving area, gymnasiums, a wrestling room for Karate camps, and ample indoor classrooms.
Registration for camps begins at our March Saturday Registration Fair from 9am-12pm at the Pepper Pike Learning Center. A Summer Camp Payment Plan is available for our most popular camps - scroll down for further details - but you must register at the fair to be eligible.
With dozens of amazing camps designed to appeal to a wide array of talents and interests, campers are sure to have a fun-filled summer with Orange Community Education & Recreation's comprehensive summer camp program. Orange Community Education & Recreation's friendly staff are ready to answer your questions at (216) 831-8601 or at the Pepper Pike Learning Center during normal business hours.
Since camp groups and the decision to employ and train staff are based on enrollment, camp fees are non-refundable. In the event of a sudden illness or injury, please speak with your Camp Director. We will attempt to modify and make accommodations to meet the needs of your child. A medical refund may be considered, minus a $25 processing fee, only upon receipt of a written report from your primary care physician. No exceptions, please.
PAYMENT PLAN AVAILABLE
A Summer Camp Payment Plan is available for resident and non-resident campers enrolling in any camp priced $99 or more. Early Childhood Extended Care Camp and Open Door fees are not eligible. Payment plans are not available for any other camps or combination of camps. To take advantage of the Camp Payment Plan, you must register for camp and the payment plan at the Spring/Summer Activity & Camp Registration Fair on Saturday from 9am-12pm or on the Monday following the fair from 9am-8pm at the Pepper Pike Learning Center.
