Check out the schedule and descriptions for KidSpirit Summer Day Camp! 

To keep our campers, families and staff healthy, we are following the guidance outlined by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission and the Oregon Health Authority. KidSpirit will conduct two-week camps with groups of 10 campers and as always, be a mix of science, art, culture, and exploring the world around us. The anticipated start date is July 20th when OSU plans to resume on-campus activities. Registration is now open.

Camp will look a bit different this year...

What to Expect 

  • Class Size 
    • Each stable camp group will have up to 10 campers with two instructors and one floater staff. For each session, your camper will interact with the campers and staff assigned to their group. Campers will stay with this group each day for the entire session.
    • Groups will have the same 10 campers and 3 staff per session (2 weeks). Group changes within the session will not be permitted. 
    • Camp groups will change every session (2 weeks). 
  • Each day, we will ask you these two questions and the answer must be "yes" to both for your camper to attend. 
    • “Can you confirm that you have checked your child’s temperature this morning and that it is less than 100.4?”

    • “Can you confirm that your child is free from any of the following symptoms: (COVID-19 Symptoms)
