Camp Easterseals recognizes the gifts and potential of our campers. We create an environment that emphasizes the campers’ abilities and independence, as well as the development of their social skills and appreciation and knowledge of the outdoors. Participants make friends, learn about and explore nature, sing songs around the camp fire, gain confidence, and create memories that linger long after the camp fires have died down. Camp Easterseals offers two five-day and four-night sessions in July at Upward Bound Camp near Lyons, Oregon, located 30 miles east of Salem. Upward bound Camp is fully accredited by the American Camp Association and is tailored for children and adults with special needs.
