Held in Italy at the AIS European Training Centre, 18 athletes have been invited although the squad remains fluid with injuries as well as college and European commitments all taken into consideration.
Athletes not named for this first camp can still join the Opals team at a later date for a second camp before the final team is announced ahead of the Commonwealth Games.
Not listed in the Opals squad is four-time Olympian Laura Hodges who has called time on her stellar career with the Australian Opals.
"Leading into the Rio Olympics I was quite certain that it was the last time I would represent my country in the green and gold," Hodges said.
