THPRD is committed to providing a fun, memorable, and safe camp experience. We will be monitoring state and federal guidelines and will adapt our programs, as needed, to ensure the safety of all participants. We will communicate any changes to families as guidelines are updated.
THPRD Summer Camps
THPRD has planned a variety of sports, recreation, tennis, and nature camps for campers age 4 - 15, which typically start in June. These full-day and half-day camps are offered through the following facilities:
Babette Horenstein Tennis Center
Cedar Hills Recreation Center
Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center
Garden Home Recreation Center
Tualatin Hills Athletic Center (including Camp Rivendale at Jenkins Estate)
Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center
Tualatin Hills Nature Center (including Cooper Mountain Nature Park and Jenkins Estate Gatehouse)
What inclement weather plans are in place for outdoor camps? In case of rain, we will utilize areas available at camp locations and portable canopies to keep campers dry and out of the weather. However, our schedule will remain the same, so the staff will adjust activities as needed. If thunder or lightning is present, staff will congregate the children in a safe place (not on high ground, no isolated trees, etc.) and wait until 30 minutes after the last observed thunder or lightning before resuming activities.
Our regular procedures regarding sun protection will also be strictly followed, including encouraging staff and campers to play or take breaks in shaded areas, having children apply sunscreen at least every two (2) hours, and after drying off from being wet. Participants will be encouraged to drink plenty of water to stay cool and avoid dehydration.
Will THPRD track any illness symptoms or outbreaks?
Campers or staff testing positive for Covid will be asked to isolate for 5 days.
Individuals who were exposed to COVID are not required to quarantine if they do not have symptoms and have not tested positive for COVID. They can choose to quarantine if they prefer.
Individuals exposed to COVID are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering while they are onsite for a full 10 days after their exposure. A person can develop COVID-19 after an exposure. Therefore, it is important that exposed individuals continue to monitor themselves for symptoms for 10 days after their last exposure to a person with COVID-19. If symptoms develop, the individual should isolate at home and notify THPRD immediately
Will there be other changes to pick-up and drop-off?
Site-specific check-in and check-out procedure information will be provided by each facility before the start of camp.
What about smoke or smog? In the case of poor air quality, staff will modify activities, reducing high energy level activities, such as running, tag games, and extensive hiking. Staff will also encourage campers to take extra breaks, drink lots of water, and will, of course, be keeping a close eye on participants throughout the day.
If the Air Quality Index (AQI) reaches the level of Very Unhealthy (201-300), programs will be moved indoors to an area where the AQI is below 201. If the AQI reaches Hazardous (301-500) programs will be canceled.
My child may benefit from additional support. Does THPRD offer inclusion services?
THPRD's Inclusion Services program provides reasonable support and accommodation that assists patrons experiencing disability to participate in the wide variety of programs and activities available through THPRD. Please visit thprd.org/activities/adaptive-and-inclusive-recreation/inclusion-services to read more and find out how to place a request for inclusion services.
I tried to register for a camp but was told I’m on the waitlist. What does that mean?
When a camp fills, participants are added to a waitlist based on the order of their registration. As spaces become available (through expansion of camps at the site or in the event someone drops the camp), participants will be notified in the order they appear on the waitlist and given 24 hours to confirm the spot is still desired. If we do not hear from you within 24 hours, we will move on to the next person. Please ensure that you keep your email and contact information up to date for this purpose.
