Campo Azul (Oregon)


Campo Azul (Oregon)

:"Campo Azul is also the name of a town in Minas Gerais, Brazil"

Campo Azul, which is Spanish for "Blue Camp," was, according to The Oregonian, the most heavily fined migrant camp in the state of Oregon. [http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/index.ssf?/news/oregonian/00/04/lc_21azul24.frame] The camp, which was founded in the 1970s, was named for the color of the shacks on the convert|133|acre|km2|sing=on farm. It was reported that 90 or so adults and children lived on the camp, paying $125 per month rent per person.

Operated by the Boggs Family

Campo Azul was owned and operated by the Boggs family of Scholls, Oregon. When Lorraine Boggs, mother of Haven Boggs and former mother-in-law of Mary Manin Morrissey, died on February 28, 2000, the ownership of the Boggs farm was in dispute. Only after various legal negotiations was ownership of the farm settled.

Birthplace of Living Enrichment Center

In the 1970s, the Boggs farm was considered for a possible location for Living Enrichment Center's retreat center, with thoughts of converting the camp shacks into cabins for retreat participants. It was while living at the Boggs farm that Lorraine, Haven, and Mary Boggs began the church that would evolve into Living Enrichment Center. (Mary Boggs would later divorce Haven Boggs and marry Edward Morrissey, becoming Mary Manin Morrissey.)

The church would eventually move off the Boggs farm and begin to meet in various locations throughout the Portland, Oregon area, until finally settling on the Callahan Center in Wilsonville.

Living Enrichment Center would later become the biggest New Thought church in the state of Oregon, as well as one of the biggest New Thought churches in the world.
