Summer Camps

River Adventure camps include a full day of paddling on the Tualatin River with experienced river guides. Campers paddle alongside kingfishers, mink, eagles, otter, beaver, great blue heron and other wildlife right in the city!

We utilize the varied landscapes of the Tualatin to run summer day camps for kids ages 4 to 13, allowing students to explore the natural world in a safe environment. All camps include hiking, arts and crafts, and games where your child is sure to make new friends and become a fledgling scientist.
