Northwest Camp Update
We have some good news. After several weeks of reviewing updated state of Oregon regulations and working out details with the host camp at Camp Magruder, we have decided that accommodations can be made for a successful and rewarding camp at Camp Magruder this year. There will be some restrictions, but Northwest Camp will operate as planned and the information on the UYC site about Northwest Camp is correct. The dates are the same, July 18–25 and staff July 17. All those who applied to be on staff or attend as campers will receive an email this week. There is still room for four or five boy campers. We appreciate your patience as we worked out many details and thank everyone for their prayers.

Preteen Camp Ochoco Update
We know that many have been waiting to hear about the status of their applications to Camp Ochoco this year. We were hoping to work through the COVID-19 regulations and find new ways to have fun at camp, but unfortunately, we did not have nearly enough staff or camper applicants by the deadline, and we were not able to solidify our attendance with the camp by the time they needed a confirmation. Our preteens are so very important to us and we deeply regret that we cannot make this camp happen for them this year. If you have sent in payment, you will be receiving a refund. I want to thank everyone for applying and we are planning on camp next year.
—Jeff Richards, director, Camp Ochoco
