Join us for Camp UKANDU's Teen Retreat 2019:

Monday, August 12th - Friday, August 16th, 2019

 

The Teen Retreat is a truly unique experience that allows participants to gain confidence, build trust and community, experience peace and challenge in nature, and explore potential and possibilities. The teens will travel 53 river miles and camp under the stars for five days and four nights. Off the water, we enjoy group movement & reflective activities, discussions, games and delicious meals. On the water, expect to learn how to navigate and paddle through many different river features, from flat water, eddies and big waves to class II-IV rapids!!!

To be a staff volunteer:

One of our primary goals is to provide our programs at no cost to the families we serve. Camp has only one paid full-time employee. The depth and breadth of our volunteers’ backgrounds and experience are the secrets to our success. Every summer more than 100 adults (aged 21 or older) travel from near and far to volunteer their time to create our camp magic – many of these volunteers use a week of their vacation time to be at camp. Volunteers can apply as Counselors, program staff, and medical staff. Their efforts continue year-round – putting on events, planning activities, serving on committees, stuffing and stamping envelopes and much more.

 

Our volunteer medical team is largely comprised of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and social workers from Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital at OHSU. This team is vital and makes it possible for children currently on treatment to attend Camp UKANDU.

 

Our Leader in Training (LIT) program is designed for Camp Ukandu “graduates” (who are at least 19 years old) who want to come back and serve as mentors and inspiration to our campers.  These young adults will typically spend two years in our LIT program and then, if they choose, will be eligible to become members of the program or counseling staff (even if not yet quite 21!). The success of this program means that in any given year, 25 to 30 percent of our staff is comprised of former campers.  These young leaders bring a very important perspective to our staff and provide campers with tremendous role models and inspiration.
