Camp Dates 2023

August Camp 2023 will be located on a brand-new site in Oregon!  We’ll be camped on private land between Sandy, OR, and Mount Hood Village, only about an hour’s drive from Portland International airport, making this one of the most easily accessed sites Camp has had in many years.  We will have access to great hiking in sections of the Columbia River Gorge and around Mount Hood, and in the Mt Hood National Forest.  There is easy access on foot to the Sandy River.

Week 1 July 15-22

Week 2 July 22-29

Week 3 July 29- August 5

Week 4 August 5-12

The general application window for August Camp 2023 will open on January 2, 2023, at 9 AM (EST) and close on January 11, 2023, at 11:59 PM (EST). Acceptances will be made based on a random lottery system, but applications will continue to be accepted until camp is full and there is a substantial waitlist.
