Agape Youth Camp Eugene is our largest camp serving over 200 youth ages 7-17 who live in Eugene or surrounding cities and have been impacted by incarceration. Agape Youth Camp Eugene is a four day trauma-informed summer camp provided FREE of charge for our youth. Camp is the catalyst program for 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 four days of Agape Youth Camp Eugene, campers experience the comfort of knowing they are not alone while meeting other youth experiencing similar circumstances. This provides the students 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 starting point 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 are August 22nd-25th, 2019 at Camp Harlow. Registrations and volunteer applications for the 2019 camp open Friday, March 22nd!
