Chemeketa is located in Salem, the capital city of Oregon. A small city with a rich local history, a mild climate, and a low crime rate, Salem is surrounded by the orchards and farms of the fertile Willamette Valley.

About 150,000 people call Salem home and enjoy its tree-lined streets, riverfront park, and convenience to downtown shopping. Every year, Salem hosts the World Beat Festival organized by our diverse cultural community and featuring food, music, and dances from around the world. Salem and its surrounding communities have Latino, Asian, European, Pacific Islander, and many other populations that bring a wealth of perspectives to the city.

Temperatures in the summer may vary from 10 to 25 degrees Celsius, while winter temperatures vary from 0 to 10 degrees Celsius. Most of the total rainfall occurs from November through March. The summer months are generally dry. Although Oregon is best known for the temperate climate and the rain that creates green farms and forests, it is also good to plan for summer heat and occasional winter snow.

Salem is located about an hour from the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains, offering opportunities for hiking, skiing, and other outdoor activities for which the Pacific Northwest is noted. Portland, the largest city in Oregon, is less than an hour drive to the north. Portland offers a wide variety of cultural activities and Portland International Airport is easily accessible from Salem.
