summer camp


It is with very heavy hearts that the Grace Institute Board and Administrative Team Staff have determined that we need to postpone Grace Art Camp 2020 to next summer in the utmost concern for the safety of our campers and staff. Although final State guidelines have not been released, it is clear there will still be restrictions on social distancing and group size limits in Oregon and Multnomah County throughout the summer. Social distancing is not possible at Grace Art Camp; in fact, we are joyfully just the opposite! 

The best and safest course of action going forward is to move the whole of Grace Art Camp 2020 to summer 2021. This includes everything: the theme Stories from Mexico – Viejo y Nuevo, the stories, the artists and staff, the campers and all the wonderful projects we are planning. 

Even without camp, the spirit of creativity in our artists and the children of our community is alive and in need of opportunity to shine. Please consider donating to the Grace Art Camp Summer 2020 Creativity Fund. These funds will be used to produce fun, short on-line content as a weekly gift to our camp families. These weekly “bright spots” will never replace camp but we hope it helps encourage the joy of creativity. To make a tax-deductible donation please go here. We are so grateful for your support, especially during these uncertain times.
