Easterseals Oregon Summer Camp at Evans Creek Retreat


Easterseals Oregon Summer Camp recognizes the gifts and potential of our campers. We create an environment that emphasizes the camper’s abilities and independence, as well as the development of their social skills and appreciation and knowledge of the outdoors.

Easterseals Oregon makes it possible for families of Campers with disabilities or special needs to attend camp regardless of the cost. Campers discover new abilities, gain independence, make lifelong friendships, and build lasting memories. Camp also gives them the opportunity to experience the outdoors, nature, and time away from the “four walls” they may experience at home. For some of our campers, this is their only summer vacation, as traveling with special needs can involve added challenges and expense. In addition, caregivers receive respite time to rejuvenate themselves.

We offer two five-day and four-night sessions in July at Evans Creek Retreat. Evans Creek Retreat is accredited by American Camp Association and has over 40 years of experience running camps for children and adults with disabilities and special needs.
