Summer Opportunities Fair

Fair Details

Where am I?


How will the Fair benefit my camp program?

The Summer Opportunities Fair is a very well known, well-attended event in the St. Louis community. Last year more than 1,500 people visited the Fair, and this year we expect an even larger attendance. Your presence will enable you to market your program directly to a targeted audience of parents and children who are looking for a summer program.

At the end of the Fair, should you plan to participate, this website will be launching a “Virtual Camp Fair” allowing parents and children an additional opportunity to revisit some of the camps that had booths at this year’s event.  Placement in the Virtual Fair is available for an additional fee.

Who attends this Fair?

The Fair is attended by parents and children, by grandparents who may want to gift their grandchild with a summer camp, by high school students, and anyone looking for ideas for new summer opportunities.

I'm coming in from out of town. Do you have rooms reserved?

We appreciate every exhibitor that is interested in or participates in our Fair. While we do not have rooms reserved for our out-of-town exhibitors, we have provided you with a list of hotels in close proximity to the Fair site. Please feel free to contact a Fair representative if you need further assistance.

What credit cards do you accept?

We only accept Visa and Mastercard credit cards.  Please follow instructions and prompts during the registration process.

What is the cancellation policy?

Fees are refundable only for cancellations made by Monday, Dec. 12, 2022. After Dec. 12, 2022, partial refunds of 50% may be made if the space is re-booked, but this refund is not guaranteed. 

How is the Fair publicized?

The Fair is publicized throughout the Greater St. Louis metropolitan area via print and digital media, public service announcements, television exposure (when possible) and signage placed outside the three host schools. The Fair is also publicized directly to students and parents through area schools and their districts. Word of mouth has been one of our biggest sources of publicity.

How do I get information about next year's Fair?

We will send you an e-mail reminder of our next fair in the fall of the prior year. Please remember to keep your contact information up to date by emailing us with any changes. If you know of any camp that may be interested in the Fair, please let us know and we will make sure to contact them.
