Each week a different church group hosts FOCUS students, scholars & families, providing food and location for outdoor fun. We 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 do not have a group to host the event and 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 below and will also be in the weekly FOCUS email.

We meet at 5:30 PM at PSU at the south end of the park blocks at SW College St and SW Park Ave.  We will immediately travel to the picnic location.  Depending on driving distance to the host church's designated site, we will eat sometime between 6:15pm and 6:30pm.  You will be returned to campus anywhere between 9pm and 9:30pm.


To All FOCUS Staff / Associates / Interested Individuals:  If you can help transport people, please consider coming to the PSU meeting place prior to 5:30pm to pick up several international students and/or scholars. If you will be a driver, please complete the FOCUS Driver Certification and bring the completed form with you to the pickup site.
