Greetings Families!
We are excited to share that Camp ELSO will be launching an all new online registration portal. Registration is now open.

Registration Information:

In alignment with our mission and racial equity lens,
Wayfinders Summer Program is a unique affinity space designed to engage children of color. All registrants who ethnically and racially identify as Black, Brown, Indigenous and/or persons of color are welcome to apply.

Registration opens March 2, 2020 for our families who attend school at one of our School Partners:
Kairos PDX, Rosa Parks, and Alder Elementary Schools
Reynolds and HB Lee Middle Schools

Registration opens on March 2, 2020 for families who have children that have participated in Wayfinders for at least 3 years.

General Registration for all families begins March 15, 2020.


Will camps fill up before March 15?
No, only 1/3 of registration spots for each session are open for priority families, leaving the remaining 2/3 of registration spots that will open March 15.

If I am a White/European parent with children of color, can I apply for my child?
Yes! Wayfinders is an affinity space for Black, Brown, Indigenous, and children of color. The ethnic/racial identity of parents are not relevant.

I don't see the field trip sites, when will that be shared?
The Wayfinders webpage is the hub for all program information. ELSO staff are hard at work putting the finishing touches on our summer camps. We will continue to update that page weekly as we roll out the details on what is in store for camp participants this summer. If you are not currently receiving our newsletter, email to be added to our mailing list and we will keep you up to date on summer plans.
