Portland Oregon Summer Camps

We are excited for our 2nd summer in Portland sharing the power of outdoor adventure! Our Portland Oregon summer camps take K – 7th graders of all ability levels out to the city’s most spectacular outdoor settings, helping them master a wide range of adventure sports in local spots they can keep coming back to for years to come.

Camp Location: Catlin Gabel School, 8825 SW Barnes Rd, Portland, OR 97225. Catlin Gabel School serves as our drop-off and pick-up location for the summer, but we are not affiliated with the school. All of our camp staff and instructors are Avid4 Adventure employees.

TESTIMONIALS

My child has HFA with anxiety. During his two weeks at Avid4 Day Camp, he came home with an increasingly positive outlook and happy demeanor. He excitedly looked forward to each day and loved how kind and nice all the staff and other kids treated him. This experience has made a dramatic difference in how he is approaching new situations and opportunities already. He is even showing new ways of navigating social situations and I couldn't be more proud of him! We are also planning an upcoming camping trip and he suddenly wants to take his bike and go kayaking. :) Thank you for providing the best summer camp a kid could ever want - and thank you for granting us the special discount through financial aid that made it possible for us. We couldn't have done it without this benefit. We will apply again for 2020 as this is the absolute best place for our kind little nature-loving and adventurous-minded child to be.

Claribel is now excited to spend more time on rivers - SUPing or kayaking. She loved the combination of sports and nature, especially on the water. It was also her first time mountain biking and was surprised at how good she was at it - hopefully, there will be more mountain biking in her future!
—Susanne, 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
Although she went into rock climbing feeling very nervous, she came home raving about it. Told me we had to buy equipment and get started. It HAS to be outdoors too. She’s okay with a rock climbing gym during winter but definitely wants to go outside. I am so proud of how she took to it even though she was scared to do it.
—Pam, Portland
My son was fearful of the water, and his counselor was so supportive and encouraging that he feels far more comfortable as a result. That was great to see! He also didn’t feel very confident on his bike, but the on-site “bike challenge” really helped with that. He feels far more capable both in the water and on his bike, and his camp experience was a big part of that. Thanks!
—Lily, Portland
My daughter is really wanting us to rent SUP and do that on our own now. I love seeing her pushing herself doing things and having a great time outside all day.
