Build a Summer Education for Rising 1st-8th Graders
BASE Camp Registration is Now Open!
OPEF’s biggest program is BASE Camp, otherwise known as “Build A Summer Education”. Our STEAM summer camp offerings are for rising 1st-8th graders. Families can build their own summer education experience each week choosing between AM and PM sessions. We also offer before and after care. OPEF BASE Camp is open to students from any school, not just D97 students. OPEF BASE Camps are led by passionate, experienced, friendly teachers-mainly from D97- and youth counselors. Camps are held in local Oak Park D97 schools.
