Formerly known as Camp Shriver, PartnerSports Camp is a cooperative effort of Douglas ESD and the YMCA of Douglas County. Most activities take place at or are launched from the YMCA, 1151 N.W. Stewart Parkway, Roseburg. This is the camp’s 15th year. It’s open to students across Douglas County. This summer, due to COVID-19 restrictions, PartnerSports Camp is scheduled for Monday through Thursday, July 13-23, and will include at-home activities followed by a car parade and ceremony on Saturday, July 25.

Campers and partners get to participate in a car parade. We encourage you to decorate your cars. Cars will need to line up at the YMCA parking lot by 9:30 a.m. The car parade will begin at 10 a.m. and will end in the YMCA parking lot where a brief ceremony will commemorate camper and partner participation. The event will conclude at 12 p.m. Due to health and safety concerns, participants must remain in their cars.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
