Creative Summers Youth Education Program

Community-Based Educational Camp to Provide Portland Youth with a Positive Experience of Hip-Hop Culture and Outlet to Express Themselves

"Creative Summers", the first annual youth summer camp based on the five elements of hip-hop culture, is a week long educational program, kicking off Monday, July 21 and running through Saturday, July 26, 2014. This Program is brought to you in collaboration with a local 501-C3 non-profit organization, Oregon Universal, to providing a safe, welcoming, supportive, and positive learning environment for Portland youth to be creative, express themselves and develop new skills. This program aims to raise funds and awareness to offer ongoing free gatherings and educational programs at Salmon Street Studios (109 SE Salmon Street, Portland, OR), with the intent to bring community together in the original form of hip-hop culture, in the spirit of positivity, peace, love, unity and having fun.
