Summer Camp

Our multi-day camps offer a traditional summer camp experience! Campers get to choose how to spend their days. In the morning we offer a wide variety of classes and activities, ranging from outdoor skills to baking, from snorkeling to theater! Campers can spend their afternoons swimming or boating on our beautiful lake, crafting in our craft studio, playing team sports, or simply hanging out with their new friends. After dinner the whole camp comes together for our camp-wide evening programming and campfire. The days are full and the days are fun!

Outdoor School

Outdoor School teaches the youth of Central Oregon science in a camp-like setting along the shores of Dark Lake. Students spend their days in the field exploring with our naturalists. Students also learn archery, canoeing, recycled art crafting, low ropes challenge courses and team building! Students stay in cabins with their classmates and eat meals communally. Our nights are ended with campfires, full of songs and skits the students themselves create!
