The American Legion Oregon Boys State is a week long non-partisan civics exercise. We at Boys State believe in our motto "Learning by Doing". To facilitate this we have created a simulated "51st" state called the State of Christensen. The week is divided into numerous activities including sports, hearing Oregon state government officials, and of course all activities involved with running our 51st state.
Oregon Boys State is an opportunity to stretch yourself. You will be challenged continually by the program, the staff, and fellow citizens to push yourself beyond what you believe you can do. Embrace this opportunity to go beyond what you believe are your limitations and excel.
Every day you will arise early, work throughout the day in the simulation, attend speakers and learning presentations, and participate fully in the program. You will learn about college credit opportunities, discover the history of the flag, take a break during a daily recreation period or our fun Field Day, attend field trips to different venues in the capital and other locales, and much more. You will fall asleep each night exhausted and satisified only to arise early the next day to do it all over again.
