Agape Youth Camp Eugene is our largest camp serving almost 200 youth ages 7-17 who live in Eugene or surrounding cities and have been impacted by incarceration. Agape Youth Camp Eugene is a 4 day trauma-informed summer camp provided free of charge for our youth. Camp is the “flagship” program for our Agape Youth offering wonderful memories while serving as a strategic “on-ramp” to reach our families for additional programs and assistance.
Our campers are introduced to the healing and hope that can be found through breaking down the walls of stigma, providing daily necessities such as sleeping bags, pillows, hygiene items and clothes, as well as introducing youth to loving, caring adult role models. Throughout the 4 days of Agape Youth Camp Eugene, campers experience the camaraderie of knowing they are not alone while meeting other youth experiencing similar circumstances. This provides youth a safe opportunity to talk through the hurt and a renewed sense of hope and possibilities for their life.
The Eugene Agape Youth Camp truly acts as the catalyst for local youth to get plugged into our year-round mentorship and follow up programs. Having a long term, positive adult role model to learn from, grow with, confide in and receive consistent support from has a considerable impact on the lives of youth in all of our goal areas.
We hope you can join us at the Agape Youth Camp Eugene 2019 as a camper or volunteer. The dates for our Eugene camp is August 22-25th, 2019 at Camp Harlow.
We have a couple of ways that you can stay involved with Agape Families year-round, local to your area. To become a mentor in Eugene and to learn more about our Agape Youth Mentorship Program visit our mentorship page.
Not sure if you are ready to commit to the Agape Mentorship Program? Get plugged in and serve with us at our Eugene Christmas Reunion Event on Saturday, December 1st for all youth and their families. For many of these youth and their families this Reunion will be their only Christmas.
Stay tuned for more info about registering for the 2019 camp!
