Discovery Camp

Overview

This five-day introductory course is dedicated to self-exploration through kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding, tubing, and whitewater rafting on the Willamette and Clackamas rivers. Kids who are comfortable in water will find themselves immersed in this outdoor environment; no experience required. Discovery Camp is a perfect step up from our afterschool program, tours, or family nights and it prepares children for Adventure Camp.
