SUMMER CAMPS


2020 SUMMER CAMPS


ORYA Summer Camps & Clinics will adhere to State Reopening Guidelines for Amateur and Youth Sports. Since each sport is different, specific protocols will be communicated to each group prior to the start of each program. 

This summer, ORYA is working with ORHS coaches, ORYA volunteers and other sports professionals to provide more summer sports opportunities. Instead of sitting on the couch get your player involved in any of our summer offerings. Offerings below will focus on fun and development while giving players something different to do during the day!

ORYA summer camps will be used as fundraising initiatives. ORYA looks forward to providing fun and developmentally appropriate camp programs that improve our ability to offer quality programming during the regular seasons. Camps will be posted as they are created.
