Create Lifelong Summer Camp Memories with Sandpipers and More! OGRCC’s camp registration is now OPEN!
OGRCC is thrilled to announce lots of exciting camp options for all ages and interests! Our camp experiences help children discover talents and interests, build self-esteem and confidence, and, most of all, the opportunity to create memories and foster friendships. We offer camps from June 22 through August 28 in tennis, rugby, soccer, art, and science. We also offer our popular Sandpipers’ Beach Camp at Tod’s Point. Camps are open to all.
Sandpipers Beach Camp
Sandpipers Beach Camp is not just a summer camp. It is a summer family. For children ages 3 – 12, no other camp provides an authentic beach camp experience at an affordable price. Young campers gather from all over to enjoy the serene setting of beautiful land and beach. In their bright yellow shirts with the Sandpiper bird logo, you will find groups of children swimming, playing in the sand, exploring, climbing, playing outdoor games, crafting, and more! This outdoor adventure offers four exciting bi-weekly themes between June 22 – August 13 from 9:00 – 3:00 pm.
“This year, we have four new themes and special crafts and activities planned for each session. We keep the cost affordable at $375 per two-week session. We will also continue the traditions of Sandpipers with field trips to Island Beach, BBQ at the beach, and classic games and fun,” said Yuki Ikeda, Program Director of the OGRCC and Co-Director of Sandpipers.”
● Party in the USA: June 22 – July 2

“We encourage kids not just to follow a schedule but to help push them to find creative ways to entertain themselves unplugged during free time,” said Jenna Pelazza, Co-Director of Sandpipers.
