What is Passport Oregon?
Passport Oregon was founded in the Spring of 2016 with the vision to take students and their parents out of the normal day-to-day and into nature. We partner with schools and community groups to identify young Oregonians that lack avenues to adventures in Oregon’s outdoors. We then gather students into a cohort, and they travel together 2 times a month on various trips around Oregon. In 2018 Passport Oregon became an official program of PT&E and is now completely run by our organization and a corps of dedicated volunteers. We want every Oregonian to experience the state of Oregon.
Over 100 students, including 22 of our Scholar Athletes, have had the chance to explore our beautiful state thanks to this unique outdoor education program. We have visited the Oregon Coast, Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge and Silver Falls among other iconic locations throughout the state.
