Thanks for all who attended!
February 28th – March 3rd (must arrive in Portland on Thursday the 28th between 3 and 9 pm and cannot depart from Portland until after 1 p.m. on the 3rd)
YETI will be held at Camp Collins
(3001 SE Oxbow Pkwy, Gresham, OR 97080)
Free shuttle provided from airport to camp and back to airport
(camp is a long way from the airport so taxis aren’t possible. Taxis and rental cars will not be reimbursed by YETI)
YETI Travel Rules:
Flights are to only be bought once you receive an acceptance letter from the YETI team at HFO. Try to keep flights under 500, but contact HFO if that is not possible. All flights will be reimbursed upon arrival to YETI.
If a teen (under 18) is coming to YETI from your chapter we ask that someone over 18 travel with them.
HFO is inviting three people from each location. Those attending should include:
- one adult responsible for teen programming who is representing the bleeding disorder chapter (either staff member or volunteer)
- one staff member from their local HTC, also responsible for teen programming.
(If you have any issues getting an HTC representative- contact [email protected])
- one teen (ages 14 – 20 – not yet 21 years old) to attend the teen program offered through YETI – this will allow the teens to experience an Oregon teen weekend and help the team to develop a stronger local program. It is not required that a teen attend but it is recommended that each location bring a teen leader.
The team approach helps to make the implementation of a local teen program much more successful.
**It is mandatory that the team is composed of a chapter representative and an HTC representative, it is not mandatory that a teen representative participate from each location. HFO will follow up on all registrations and if the applicants do not meet the team requirements described above, you will potentially jeopardize your participation at YETI.
