Dear Willowbrook Community

We hope your camper has had a wonderful and memorable summer with us at camp, and while we are dismantling tents and cleaning the park, we have already started planning for 2018. We will continue offering a great experience and traditions that the Tualatin/Portland community and beyond has come to expect at Willowbrook. We can't wait to have your camper join us next summer, whether it's for the first time or to see your Willowbrook friends once again.

Warmly, Willowbrook Staff and Board
