Sure it’s only April, but have you mapped out your entire summer break yet?

If you’re like many PDX families, you’re in the thralls of wading through a sea of summer camps, trying to find the best options to fill your child’s “open weeks” several months in advance. We can help!

To get the word out about about Growing Upwards’ new searchable database of over 200 local camps, we’re offering a free week at camp for one lucky family. To enter simply…

  1. Go to the Growing Upwards’ Facebook page and SHARE the post pinned to the top entitled “WIN A WEEK AT CAMP” (make sure you set privacy  to ‘public’ so we can see it)
  2. We’ll randomly select and announce a winner on Wednesday, May 3rd via Facebook
  3. If we select your name, we’ll contact you via FB Messenger with the details, and you can go ahead and register for a week at the summer camp of your choosing (pending availability of course).
  4. Then let us know which camp you signed up for by providing a valid receipt, and we’ll reimburse you (up to $400). Easy peasy.
