“Someone asked me the other day what my biggest achievement in life is so far.  It was what I accomplished this summer. OC taught me so much about myself and life in general. I am a better person, thanks to each and every person I met.”

  – Quinn Johnston

Being apart of OC is the truest testament to a person’s commitment and ability. Being in the Oregon Crusaders isn’t just about performing, it’s about family.

At Oregon Crusaders, I have found the challenge I was seeking, the friendships I’ve been yearning, and the experience of a lifetime. You will keep eating it all up, learning, growing, and you will be positively forever changed by it.

OC feels like home. I think a lot of people can say that. The moment you walk in, you feel comfortable, and know that the staff and people around you want you to succeed. I don’t have enough words to describe this summer, but I gained a family from it all. OC has been a second home to me this summer and I will always be grateful for that.

To me, being a member of OC means feeling like I can do anything. The little team from Oregon that became a big part of my life.
