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.
Youth must be ages 16-22 and current or future VR clients.
