Summer Day Camps in Bend, Oregon

Nothing compares to that soaring confidence you get when you overcome your fears and try something new as a kid. And the positive effects of these extraordinary moments last long after they happen. Unfortunately, these opportunities exist less and less for kids today. That’s where we come in. Avid4 Adventure summer day camps take K – 7th graders from beginner to expert to some of the best outdoor recreation areas in Bend, Oregon—inspiring kids with priceless experiences that last a lifetime. Through empowering outdoor sports like biking, kayaking, rock climbing, stand up paddleboarding and hiking, our experienced outdoor educators help kids gain the skills and self-assuredness they need to choose an active, outdoor lifestyle. By applying our proven techniques and curriculum, your kids will be begging you to get back outside after their week at camp is over—and they’ll probably want to teach you all the great new skills they’ve learned, too.

Camp Location: Seven Peaks School, 19660 Mountaineer Way, Bend, OR 97702

TESTIMONIALS

The experience resulted in my kid having increased confidence and more excitement for outdoor activities. It was so much fun to look forward to every day! Wish we could have attended ALL SUMMER.
—Cary, Portland
All of the instructors were awesome. Patient with some of my daughter's challenges due to ADHD and overall just positive people with a passion for what they were doing.
—Jenifer, Portland
My child was excited to go every day and even more excited when she came home. The photos are very appreciated! First-time experiences are precious so I'm grateful I got to see what each day was like and to see the enthusiasm on her face. Thank you! We also appreciate how organized, prepared, and communicative you all are.

Nora loved every minute of camp. She was concerned about rock climbing and mountain biking but she seemed to really enjoy it. Apparently we now have to invest in rock climbing gear and learn ourselves! Well done Avid4!
—Pam, Portland
I really am impressed at how enthusiastic all the counselors are and the Director. It is SO nice to see every person engaged and smiling and looking parents in the eye and telling us how the day went. A++!!!
—Jenny, Portland
Our son has always been an adventurous kid who likes new experiences, but can, on occasion, get too much into his head and talk himself out of keeping up with the hard thing in order to succeed. He came out of camp this week incredibly confident and bursting with pride over his ability to ride a bike without training wheels. He wanted to ride all evening and couldn’t stop smiling and saying how proud of himself he is. Thank you!
—Amanda, Portland
Our child on the first day introduced herself by saying "Hi, I'm Ada and I don't want to go into the water." instead of saying, okay, you don't have to go in the water, the consistent message from each counselor that this occurred with was "I understand that you're nervous about the water. Each camper has their own personal flotation device, and we teach you what you need to know outside the water first, and if you're still not comfortable about doing it on your own, you can ride with an instructor." to which she said "okay" every time. they really knew what to say to draw out the inner adventurer from her timid shell. By the second week, she was excited to kayak and paddleboard again. Something her parents have never even done, this 6-year-old did it safely, while making great memories and building competence.
