Community Events - Ten Oaks Project

Events around town

When we’re not busy at camp, you can often find the Ten Oaks Project at a community event with one of our partners! We’ve participated in Pride picnics, co-hosted board game nights, and helped to run storytelling sessions at local libraries.

If you’re interested in partnering with the Ten Oaks Project on your next community event, make sure to contact us!
