Summer Opportunities Fair

The Summer Opportunities Fair (SOF) is a community service event that provides a venue for parents and children to learn about summer programs. The fair presents a wide range of local, national, international camp, and summer study opportunities for kids of all ages in academic and cultural enrichment, outdoor adventure, sports, travel, day and board, community service and volunteer programs, and programs for children with special needs.

The fair, held on the Westridge campus in Pasadena, California, has earned the reputation as one of the premiere camp fairs in the nation. A nationally recognized community service event, the fair attracts over 2,500 people each year.

First offered to the community in 1991, the fair draws visitors from Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley, the Greater Los Angeles area, and the San Fernando Valley. This informative community service event is free to the public and offers something for every student.

Donate to SOF

The Fair is hosted by the Westridge Parent Association (WPA) and organized by our parent volunteers. Proceeds from the Fair benefit Partnership for Success!, a program that provides summer enrichment opportunities for underserved students from the Pasadena Unified School District to help strengthen their academic skills and prepare them for college. Selected students from PUSD’s 18 schools enroll in a nine year, fully-funded program that takes place for five weeks each summer at Westridge and other area private schools.

Proceeds also support girls’ empowerment at Westridge School—an independent, forward-thinking girls’ school committed to educating intellectually adventurous thinkers and courageous, compassionate leaders.

With the loss of sales from an in-person Fair for the second year and expenses incurred to keep the fair online, we hope you will consider making a donation to SOF below
