Tsuga Community Commission (TCC) was founded in 2008 to serve as a social entrepreneurship initiative building community capacity between and within Oregon youth communities. TCC was established as an Oregon 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2010. We conduct formative research through grant funded initiatives to inform the curriculum applied through our community development camps and residential environmental education programming.
Mission: Tsuga conducts and responds to needs assessments identifying opportunities in youth development and community enhancement, to build custom residential and day-camp programs, with complimentary professionals and collaborative organizations, to produce sustainable social capital networks within and between Oregon youth communities.
Do you have more than just a passion for camp, but also the unique set of skills that make you a greater version of yourself at Summer Camp or Outdoor School?
Tsuga Staff have been developing their unique style of camp programming since 2006 at more than nine different camps around Oregon. The Camp Staff Coalition thrives as an organization of young professionals, mutually encouraging career development opportunities through their experiential learning, service to a nonprofit organization and by enjoying the lifestyle of a summer camp community. Tsuga Staff are typically recruited from Multnomah County’s Outdoor School, the Northwest Outdoor Science School and other affiliated summer camps. Those who have graduated from being a participant with one of our programs, and those who started with TCC in an internship role during the off-season are also great candidates to continue their involvement as paid staff. Word of mouth referrals have been a positive way for us to continue working with those who have both the passion and skills we’re looking for.
