Inclement Weather

Summer Camp Inclement Weather Policy

♦ All camps will be held regardless of rain, including sports camps held outdoors in Montavilla Park.

♦ Please dress campers for muddy/wet weather when the forecast calls for rain.  Indoor space is limited at Montavilla Community Center.  We may take sports campers indoors when space permits us to do so.  We will also utilize the covered area in the park on occasion but since our campers choose Sports Madness camps seeking active play, we will often continue playing in the rain as much as possible.  We are Oregonians.  

♦ On rare occasions, if weather events pose a danger to our campers,  we may need to end camp early for safety.  Please help us ensure you receive our phone call by updating our database when you phone number changes in addition to maintaining correct information on  your child's camper information form.  This can be done by calling or stopping by the main office at Montavilla CC with your updated information.

 ♦ Registered participants will receive a prorated credit on their PP&R account for any cancelled day of camp.
