Grant Funding Survey

For Camp Providers:

A team of advocates has been working with the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division to request state appropriated General Funds that would support youth serving organizations, including State-Licensed Oregon Organizational Camps, YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, and summer camp providers.

We recognize that resources are needed immediately to support program operations like yours that are suffering from lost 2020 revenue, and to fund facility and program changes in 2021 in compliance with current and future COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

Please respond promptly to these important questions as we seek to gather data to determine potential grant eligibility and distribution with an equity lens. If funding is allocated, a representative team of youth serving and camp organization partners will work alongside the Early Learning Division to determine and distribute funds as quickly as possible.
Note: Participation in this survey does not guarantee funding but only those who respond would be eligible for this distribution.

This valuable organized camp industry data may also support future advocacy efforts. Your prompt input is appreciated. Please only submit one response per organization, even if you have multiple locations.

The deadline to complete the survey is January 18 at noon PST.

If you have questions about the survey or process, you may reach out to Marisa Fink with Oregon Alliance of YMCAs at marisa@oregonymcas.org or Bethany Thramer with OregonASK at bethany.thramer@oregonask.org.
