Agape Youth Camp Eugene is our largest camp serving over 220 youth ages 7-17 who live in Lane County and have been impacted by incarceration. Agape Youth Camp Eugene is a free, four day camp where kids will get to build friendships with other kids who experience the same challenges of incarceration while learning about a new hope and perspective through the gospel. Camp is the catalyst for Agape Families and introduces the families to our organization and continued follow up programs such as mentorship and events.
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.
