Friends of OSD Offering "Camperships"

An anonymous donor generously contributed a sum of money to Friends of OSD for the sole purpose of providing a summer educational and respite opportunity for OSD students. Friends of OSD is able to award 8-10 ten one-week “camperships” to Camp Taloali ($400 per campership for overnight and $200 per day camper) to students currently enrolled at OSD who are between the ages of 6-15.


Please read the guidelines carefully, and complete the application at if you are interested in attending Camp Taloali. Students who are able should answer the questions on the application themselves. Younger students may have help from their parents or guardians. Students will need to get statements of support from one OSD teacher, and one OSD staff person.


Applications for camperships must be mailed to Friends of OSD no later than April 1, 2018. The mailing address is:

PO Box 15053

Salem, OR 97309


A committee will select 8-10 OSD students to attend Camp Taloali during the summer of 2018 with a full campership. Students MUST also apply, and meet the requirements of Camp Taloali before May 1.


Those awarded camperships will be notified by April 15, 2018.


The Board members of Friends of OSD are pleased to offer  these camperships, thanks to our very generous donor.
