Adventure Camp Portland, OR - 2nd to 7th Grade - Day Camps

Our two-week Adventure summer camp transports 2nd – 7th graders to authentic local settings for thrilling, fulfilling outdoor experiences. Whether they’re returning or first-time campers, every day is a different adventure — mastering mountain biking, climbing a local crag, hiking a trail, paddling a SUP or kayak — and every challenge is calibrated to their age and ability.

Grouped by grade, first time and returning Adventure campers build on their skills and confidence year after year. 2nd – 4th graders concentrate on getting comfortable with new activities, with plenty of support and inspiration from our staff and returning campers. Once they reach 5th – 7th grade, campers shift their focus to teamwork and deepening their technical competence.

Led by the best outdoor instructors around, campers develop the know-how and lasting self-assuredness that propel them toward a lifetime of exciting and nourishing outdoor adventure.

CAMP ADVENTURES

Rock Climbing

Mountain Biking

Hiking

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Kayaking

We take campers to natural rock sites where they learn the ins and outs of climbing techniques, equipment, and safety on climbs calibrated to their ability level.

Whether they’re first-time bikers or regular riders, we get campers familiar with biking technique, safety and equipment (plus some bicycle maintenance basics) out on local trails. Campers can bring their own bikes or borrow from our fleet, which accommodates campers of any size.

On stunning local trails in scenic, nearby sites campers get out into nature and back to basics. They learn about flora and fauna and Leave No Trace principles as they explore and deepen their understanding of the world around them.

An increasingly popular sport, Stand Up Paddleboarding is a hit with campers of all ages. Campers will build their core strength as they learn to balance on their boards through a series of games and challenges. Our instructors will also teach proper strokes and rescue techniques.

Our flat-water kayaking instruction gives campers practice and confidence with paddling equipment and safety, getting them comfortable with the basics before taking on deeper skill building. Not to mention it’s lots of fun!

Why Sign Up For Multiple Sessions?

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple sessions of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others and make new friends.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
