Nature, art, science, climbing, and play are the building blocks campers ages 4-10 will use to explore the vibrant life and amazing mysteries found in green spaces surrounding our base camp, Mazama Mountaineering Center in SE Portland. Through thematic and guided activities with experienced educators, your child will laugh, learn, and make memories to last a lifetime.
For sessions 4 & 5 (weeks of Aug. 1 & 8) we’ll take a day trip to the other Mazama facility, the Mazama Lodge (add'l fee applies)! Here, we will enhance the Adventure WILD nature, science and arts programming by taking nature walks and scavenger hunts, learning to identify alpine plants and animals, learning about the morphology of Mt. Hood, and immersing campers in art projects inspired by the mountain scenery.
Not only will your child have an amazing experience at Adventure WILD Summer Day Camp, you'll be supporting a historic program here in Oregon: Outdoor School. All summer camp proceeds help send Metro-area sixth graders to this hands-on natural science education program.
