We will host a Pro Fono table at the OPA convention this year with a raffle to support Oregon Summer Star camps.
Oregon Summer Star camps offers a week of summer fun and are open to military - connected children from all service branches including National Guard and Reserve, Coast Guard, National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and the United States Public Health Services Commission Corps; however, priority is given to those children who have a parent that has been wounded, ill or injured (medically retired, medically discharged, active duty and reserve); or will have a parent or guardian deployed during a 15-month deployment “window.” As community reintegration becomes important post-deployment, the Tsuga Community Commission is proud to have developed and integrated Oregon Summer Star, a camp for all of Oregon’s military-connected youth regardless of their family’s deployment / service status. As Oregonians move into the next decade together, Oregon Summer Star is the custom camp for our youth and teens, to share experiences related to their parent’s military service, belong to a special statewide community and develop individual skills for life after camp.
