Each week a different church group hosts FOCUS students, scholars & families, providing food and an exciting location for lots of outdoor fun! We'll travel to that location for a picnic meal and other activities. Sometimes this will be a park or church facility where there are recreation opportunities.

Like FOCUS Friday Nights!, the FOCUS Summer Picnics are for Portland-area international students, scholars, and a special invitation to family members. There is no charge for the picnic.

Occasionally we will not have a group to host the event. On those weeks we will have a "potluck." For those times, we ask that all people bring some prepared food (a "dish" that doesn't require microwaving or additional cooking time) to share with others. The times that will be "potluck" will be listed above and will also be in the weekly FOCUS email.

For rides to the picnic location, we meet at 5:30 PM at PSU at the south end of the park blocks at SW College St and SW Park Ave.

Depending on traffic and the driving distance to the host church's designated site, we will eat sometime between 6:15pm and 6:30pm.

We will be return to campus anywhere between 9pm and 9:30pm.
