Camp LEAD - Leadership | Empowerment | Advocacy | Development

Camp LEAD is a week long, immersive leadership camp that helps youth with disabilities develop self-advocacy and social skills while giving them work experience and career exposure in the natural resources industry. This camp is made possible through our partnership with Youth Transition Program (YTP; a branch of Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation Services-ORVS) and Oregon State Parks.


Who:  Youth, ages 16-21. The majority of youth must be current or future VR clients. However, we will take on non-VR clients, depending on funding and availability of slots, on a case-by-case basis.

When:  Camp LEAD runs for 5 weeks, throughout the month of August. Each youth can participate in one week of camp. Next camp recruitment will begin in late spring, 2017.

Work schedule:  Approximately 24 hours for the week (6 hours a day)

Where:  Oregon State Parks, TBD
