The annual Westridge Summer Opportunities Fair (SOF), which provides a venue for parents and children ages 5 to 18 to learn about summer programs and study opportunities in Pasadena and beyond, will launch online on Saturday, February 5.

According to Westridge School, the community service event’s host, exhibitor listings will be posted on the school’s website https://www.westridgesof.org. People can view the listings for free and no registration is needed.

“We had great success last year with the Summer Opportunities Fair being online and bringing in thousands of visitors to the newly designed website,” Westridge Schools’ Advancement Associate Anahit Turgman said.

Over 100 camps and programs, including sports camps, outdoor adventure, international travel and cultural enrichment, and programs for students with special needs, can be seen on the listings. Pre-college and community service opportunities are also included.

The Summer Opportunities Fair brings in over 100 summer camps and programs, many of whom have been returning for years. “But we also have camps, who are exhibiting for the first time, so families will be able to find new camps this year,” Turgman said.

Exhibitors who want to list their camp or program on Westridge School’s website can register here: https://www.westridge.org/about/sof/registration

Earlier this month, Westridge School announced its decision to cancel the in-person fair due to high transmission of COVID-19.

“Although in December we were hopeful we would return to our in-person event this year, we decided that cancelling the fair in light of the winter surge was the best decision in order to protect our exhibitors, attendees, and volunteers,” Turgman explained.

The SOF is recognized as one of the premier camp fairs in the nation. Each year, the event draws 2,500 visitors from Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley, the Greater Los Angeles area, and the San Fernando Valley.
