Youth Adventures

Outdoor Education Adventure (OEA) Camps focus on teaching outdoor science through games and guided inquiry, allowing each participant to come to nature on their own terms. Our staff have a broad range of knowledge about the natural world, and are always looking for teachable moments to engage learners and to cultivate a sense of wonder and curiosity.

Day Camps for ages 5-12

Do your kids love spending time outdoors, exploring nature; catching frogs, snakes, and bugs; building forts; playing games, and getting dirty? Then an Outdoor Adventure Day Camp is the camp for them. Whether it’s day off from school or a week-long summer camp, OEA has a fantastic adventure planned for your child.

Five-year-olds must be in or have completed kindergarten (or equivalent). Younger children should register for our Nature Play Adventures.

 

No School Adventures ages 5-12

Want your child to do something fun with their No School Day? Look here for outdoor adventures to keep them learning when they’re not in school.

OEA checks the school calendars for all Yamhill County School Districts and schedules adventures on many teacher-in-service days. We try to hold those adventures at parks near the communities affected by the no-school day.

 

Junior Naturalist Adventures ages 12-15

This camp is perfect for the young teen who loves the camp experience and is ready for more.  Junior Naturalists will spend the day learning about local ecology, playing games, and building leadership skills. Camp participants will be eligible to volunteer as Junior Naturalist during our summer day camps where they will assist camp staff and lead some activities.
