Press Release
July 18, 2005
Oregon's Youth Camp, "Camp Rosenbaum" will celebrate its 35th year July 25-29
Camp Rosenbaum will hold its Annual Visitor's Day on Wednesday July 27, at the Rilea Training Site in Warrenton, Oregon. There will be a briefing and presentation commencing at 10:00 a.m., with a tour of the activities at camp held shortly thereafter.
Members of the local media are strongly encouraged to attend Wednesday's event, but may also visit Camp Rosenbaum any time throughout the week.
Organized by volunteer members from the Oregon National Guard, public safety organizations throughout Oregon, and several housing authorities throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington State, the camp hosts approximately 160 "at-risk" youth, ages 9-11 for a week on Oregon's picturesque northern coast.
Camp Rosenbaum is a non-profit organization that is chartered with helping Oregon's youth since 1970. The annual event held on the Oregon coast has been nationally recognized, and is a model for other states' youth programs. Children attending the camp are taught the values of staying in school, avoiding drugs, team-building and good citizenship, while at the same time instilled with hope of a better future for themselves and their families.
Throughout the week, organizers and counselors at the camp will be available for media interviews.
Please RSVP via e-mail or phone. Feel free to contact me at any of the numbers listed, or via e-mail if you have any questions or concerns.
