30,000-plus guests expected on George Fox campus this summer

More than 30,000 guests are expected to visit the George Fox University campus in Newberg, Ore., this summer, participating in a wide range of activities that include everything from music and sports camps to church conferences and, for a sixth straight year, a Special Olympics competition.

In May, a Chehalem Valley Dance Academy Recital will draw 3,000 to campus, and graduation ceremonies for Gaston and C.S. Lewis high schools will each draw about 800 in early June. The school is also hosting a national Christian librarians conference (June 12-17), and the Special Olympics will draw about 3,000 (July 9-10). Also in July, George Fox will host the annual Northwest Yearly Meeting of Friends Church Conference, expected to draw 1,500 (July 24-29), as well as a number of sports camps for basketball, football and volleyball.
