- About Us
College students from Portland State University earn credit by working as “one-on-one” counselors under the guidance and supervision of our specialized staff. Together, they offer eight, one-week sessions of residential summer camp to campers from every county in Oregon. Our camp is unique in its pledge to provide campers with a one-on-one camper-counselor ratio for free, as compared to many camps who impose added fees for this service ratio. Adaptations range from incorporating systems that compensate for limited limb strength to offering communication devices to support those with speech challenges. Our commitment to this high level of support allows people with severe disabilities the chance to fully engage in a true camp experience.
One of our campers, Renae, put it this way:
Because of you for a week I can forget my limits and pain and be free. You can never know what you give me... Thank you for caring about those who are different.
