Easterseals Oregon 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. 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.
Just a few of the activities at camp include the following:
For 2020 we will be offering two different five day/four night sessions in July at Evans Creek Retreat. Evans Creek is accredited by the American Camp Association and has over 40 years of experience running camps for children and adults with disabilities and special needs. The camp operates with a 1:3 ratio of staff to campers.
|Sunday, July 12 - Thursday, July 16||Ages 30 - 59|
|Sunday, July 19 - Thursday, July 23||Ages 9 - 29|
The cost of camp is $750 per camper, which includes all meals and snacks. Because this is out of reach for many, Easterseals Oregon offers generours scholarships.
Sessions tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend submitting applications as early as possible.
Since this year's sessions are quickly approaching, we recommend that you call our office at 503-228-5108 in order to expedite your application.
