In 2000, Oregon Right to Life held our first pro-life leadership retreat for students ages 16 to 21. Initially called Camp Joshua, then Launch, the retreat has gathered approximately 25 young adults every spring break for more than two decades to be trained by leading pro-life apologists and experts on various pro-life topics.
In 2020, that tradition changed, and we were forced to massively modify Launch. It felt strange to have a spring break without holding the typical Launch, though we did have a virtual version.
We had looked forward to this year, hoping for an in-person experience. Unfortunately, we have to shift our regular four-day spring break retreat to two days and two nights from August 4-6 at Rockaway Beach. This new Launch has a maximum capacity of 14 students. The cost will be $100 per student, with some scholarships available. If you or a student you know are interested in attending, please apply as soon as possible at ORTL.org/launch.
