Join us for our Animal adventure week to experience live animals, including rabbits, chickens, and other critters. We will explore animal homes, learn basic animal care and much more.

Each week also includes music, art, yoga, field trips and special guests. The camp day begins at 9am and ends at 3pm with tired, happy children.
WEEK ONE – FUNplugged: Classic Camp Games
Remember the good old days before Ipads and Xboxes? During fUn-plugged: Classic Camp Games week, campers will be actively engaged in fun activities and exciting games that harken back to a simpler time, when a pair of sneakers and an imagination were the only tools needed. Through classic games like Capture the Flag, Kick the Can, epic relay races and obstacle courses, your kids will develop life-long sportsmanship skills through cooperation and low-pressure competition.
WEEK TWO – CSI Camp: Clues, Science and Investigation
Calling all detectives! Put on your thinking cap and polish up your magnifying glass as we investigate the world of Central Oregon. Work with teams to crack the case, use science experiments to discover secrets, and participate in one big game of Clue! Use your powers of observation to learn how to track animals, birds and insects of Central Oregon with a visit from a local naturalist.
WEEK THREE – Worldly Wonders
See your child’s horizons expand with daily deep dives into cultures far beyond our borders. Food, art, music and dance will transport campers into vibrant cultural experiences right here in Central Oregon. Hop from the Mediterranean to the far East, down to Africa and over to South America with us during a week of exciting explorations. This week’s guests will bring music and dance for the campers to enjoy. Read, set, explore!
July 30th-August 3rd

Young fairies and wizards, join us as we explore the magic of the natural world through hikes, creating nature art, and making potions with local botanical elements.
