Let’s Get Out fosters a love of the outdoors through adventuring, exploring, and connecting to each other and the natural world. We do this by teaching outdoor skills that encourage life long participation, fun and stewardship and by inspiring kids and families to get outside together.
Let’s Get Out Adventure camp is a full-day outdoor day camp. We introduce and expand kids knowledge of adventure sports while fostering an appreciation for our unique area. Each day, participants will take part in a different adventure while exploring the Columbia Gorge Area. Instruction will be provided on each activity including the operation of equipment, utilizing common sense and risk assessment. Meanwhile, we will work with children to resolve conflicts with kindness, physically and mentally challenge themselves, support one another and cultivate their ability to work as a group.
Class includes white water rafting, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, swimming hole exploring, shelter building, wilderness awareness skills, team building, and service project activities. Leave No Trace Ethics are taught throughout the week. The week also includes a stewardship project with a local agency or non-profit. Stewardship projects help children understand the larger picture of land management, volunteerism, natural resources and the importance of giving back. Activities may vary due to weather conditions. All equipment and transportation is provided.
