The law will allow lands zoned exclusively for farm use in eastern Oregon to hold youth camps.

 

Young Life currenlty holds these youth camps on a ranch about an hour north of Madras, near Antelope.

 

Representative John Huffman was the sponsor of the bill that was designed to let Young Life, a Christian nonprofit, expand.

 

"Young Life typically can handle in the thousands in various summer camps.  But they've also branched out to some adult camps, so it's not just youth camps.  They're trying to open it up to visitors."

 

Huffman says the expansion will allow more economic devleopment in Deschutes and Jefferson County from the increased traffic from the camps.
