Located at Brown’s Ferry Park in Tualatin, Oregon, Willowbrook Arts Camp is an award-winning outdoor summer camp for kids ages 3-18  serving the greater Portland-metro area and beyond.

Our History

Willowbrook’s founder, Althea Pratt-Broome, is a pioneer in creative arts and alternative education and has helped build many successful programs in Oregon. From the small seed of workshops held at Willowbrook, her historic Tualatin home, a summer camp sprouted in 1982 with 20 children and 10 staff members.

Celebrating more than 37 years, our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has grown leaps and bounds thanks to Althea’s vision, her family’s dedication over the years, and strong community support. We are honored to carry the torch and their legacy forward with great passion and love.

"Willowbrook is a small seed we plant
today for our
belief in tomorrow."

- Althea Pratt-Broome, Founder

Brown’s Ferry Park &

Our City of Tualatin Partnership

Willowbrook Arts Camp certainly wouldn’t be the same without its beautiful location at the City of Tualatin’s Brown’s Ferry Park. In fact, since 1987, our camp has been nestled among the trees, with access to nature trails and wildlife viewing along the beautiful Tualatin River and nearby wetlands. This  magical setting lends itself perfectly to our camp, where the arts and nature intertwine.  

Our long-standing partnership with the City of Tualatin has allowed us to host camp here each year.  We are honored to have the use of such an amazing location and look forward to continuing to strengthen our friendship and collaborations with the City and surrounding community as we expand our offerings and provide youth access to the arts on a more year-round basis.
