Oakgrove is a powerful experience that allows students to engage in team building, problem solving, and share experiences and feelings about subjects such as religion, family, discrimination, and other topics related to growing up in today’s world. The camp was founded in 1972 in response to the Watts riots of the 1960s. It is a place for Venice High students to speak freely and openly about themselves and their feelings without fear of judgment. The Oakgrove retreat is organized and run by students of Venice High. This unique approach is an integral part of Oakgrove’s model of sustainability.
