TCODS Mission Statement

(Our mission has changed. As of January 2014 we are no longer planning and directing Outdoor Schools. We are moving into a supportive advisory role. The TCODS website will provide resource materials and information for camps. In addition we will serve as an archive for 47 years of Outdoor School in Tillamook County from the 1966 - 67 school year through the 2012 - 13 school year.)

TCODS provides resources of value to outdoor schools and others who operate in camp settings supporting others in providing positive, safe and caring environments, and encouraging learning important life concepts relating to and in caring for our natural resources including relating to and caring for people. We hope to continue to challenge people to pursue more learning opportunities about the needs of our environment and how people can meet those needs in very wise and caring ways.

Activities offered on our website will include those that challenge people to grow in the areas of relating to others in positive high quality ways, increasing personal self esteem, learning ways to be a responsible and positive person and that life isn't just about me and my needs.

TCODS also serves as an archive of the photos and information of 1966 - 2013 years of Outdoor School in Tillamook County.
