The mission of Camp Rosenbaum is to provide life enhancing opportunities for low-income, at-risk youth through educational, mentoring and athletic programs designed to develop good citizenship skills and promote a sense that anything is possible with hard work and positive choices. We empower children to take responsibility for their lives, stay in school, and resist the allure of gangs and drugs. We reinforce hope and direction for a better future.
It began in 1970 with a dream.
Take a group of at-risk youth, spend a week with them at Oregon’s beautiful coast, teach them the value of good citizenship, and understanding of environmental stewardship, instill in them a sense of self-confidence and just let them have fun.
