Page updated on Mar 23, 2021 at 4:53 PM

The OSTP Modified Summer Camp program is designed with limited capacity to ensure the safety of participants and prevent the spread of COVID-19. OSTP Modified Summer Camp programs for children entering first through sixth grades in fall 2021 will be available at recreation centers and school locations. An OSTP Modified Summer Camp for Middle School youth entering sixth through tenth grades in fall 2021 will be offered at one location. OSTP Modified camps are open to City residents only and are designed to meet the needs of essential workers (such as those in health care, retail, food services, government, etc.) who cannot work from home and will have limited options for child care. Priority will be given to families who qualify for financial assistance.
