Visitation

OYA recognizes the importance of interaction between youth in its custody and family and members of the community. Such access allows youth to maintain positive relationships that can help with their rehabilitation and contribute to effective planning for their treatment needs.
  • Camp Florence has visitation during daylight hours.

  • Visitation is supervised by OYA staff.

  • OYA staff will inform visitors of applicable rules, policies, and procedures relating to visitation prior to entry into the facility.

  • Staff will consider all requests for visitation and allow or deny the visit on the basis of what would best benefit the offender, within the interests of facility security and order.

  • Visitation is limited to those persons who are integral to the offender´s case plan (e.g., family members, offender´s attorney, and persons involved in the offender´s treatment). 
 
All visitors must get approval from the facility and their youth's unit managers, using this Request to Visit form.

Testing Water for Lead






Starting in February 2017, the Oregon Youth Authority began testing the water at all of our facilities for lead and copper. Lead can be harmful to people's health, and we wanted to make sure all youth, staff, contractors, volunteers, and visitors are safe and healthy.​

At Camp Florence, initial tests found one outlet with levels of lead and seven with levels of copper that were at or above the level where we take immediate action. We immediately took these outlets out of use for drinking and cooking. Our testing appears to indicate that the issues at Florence are related to the water pipes, which we plan to replace in summer 2018.
