Family Campout 2019

PPCA’s campouts are where our families hike, swim, boat, and play together and where friends old and new share stories, songs, food and drink around a campfire.

Our 11th Annual Family Campout will take place Thursday, June 27 to Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Champoeg State Heritage Area‘s group tent area on the south bank of the Willamette River. This is the first repeat venue in the eleven year history of our Family Campouts; we chose to return to the birthplace of Oregon as it’s just 30 miles southwest of Portland.


  • Thursday, June 27: Check in as early as 4:00 pm.
  • Saturday, June 29: Potluck dinner at 6:00 pm, followed by campfire tales and songs. Day visitors welcome!
  • Sunday, June 30: Check out by 1:00 pm.
