Stayton, Oregon

About 14 miles away from Salem on Highway 22, Stayton became a town in 1872 and then became incorporated in 1891 (Reference).

Camp Taloali

In 1973, the Koch family wanted their land to be donated and used as a nonprofit camp for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children to promote their skills in leadership and nature (Reference). That became Camp Taloali. To fulfill the family's ultimate goal, a summer camp program was established on it every summer for Deaf and hard of hearing children aged 6-15. Campers can continue to be involved with Camp Taloali by becoming Counselors In Training to be hired as future counselors.

Everyone needs to get away from the hustle and bustle sometimes, and retreats at Camp Taloali are just what the doctor ordered. Our blend of relaxation and exhilaration, combined with our versatile facilities, means Camp Taloali has something for everyone! When summer camp is not in session, Camp Taloali opens its doors for rentals year round. Family reunions coming up? Consider booking us for a camping style reunion!
