6/18: WILD Creatures & Conservation ($325)

Do you love intriguing insects? Slimy slugs? Beautiful birds? If so, come to WILD Creatures & Conservation Week to explore the abundance of creatures and their habitats in local green spaces! We’ll try our hands at critter catching, create creature habitats, and go bird watching in Laurelhurst Park and at Mount Hood.

6/25: WILD Science & Discovery ($325)

Did you know the course of rivers change over time? Or that you can melt ice with salt? These and other wonders of the cosmos will unfurl during WILD Science and Discovery Week. We’ll track the motion of shadows, build erupting volcanoes, and explore physics as we scale the rock climbing wall!

7/9: WILD Plants & Pollinators ($325)

Do you know which plants and animals in Oregon are native, and which are “newcomers?” Did you know that birds are pollinators? We’ll explore the world of native species and how they’re pollinated during WILD Plants and Pollinators Week. We’ll get our hands dirty as we scavenger hunt for natives at Laurelhurst Park and at Mount Hood.

7/16: WILD Winds & Waters ($340) *includes full-day trip to Kelly Point Park*

Have you ever wondered why a Portland winter is so rainy but a summer is so dry? Why the Columbia River flows west, but the wind travels east? Join us for WILD Winds & Waters Week to dive into Pacific Northwest weather and water patterns. We’ll build boats to set a sail at Kelly Point Park, experiment with atmospheric pressure, and build and test weather stations at Mount Hood.
*This week includes an additional field trip to Kelly Point Park*

7/23: WILD Oregon Homes & Habitats ($325 base tuition + $50 overnight optional add-on)

Have you ever wondered why Oregon has rain forest, tundra, and desert? Or how these climates shape the plants, animals, and peoples that live in them? Join us for WILD Oregon Homes & Habitats Week to explore the variety of peoples and places that call Oregon “home.”
*This week includes an optional Thursday night overnight at the Mazama Lodge for 8-10 year-olds*

7/30: WILD Builders & Creators ($325 base tuition + $50 overnight optional add-on)

Do you dream of building forts? Boats? Planes? We’ll put our creativity to the test as we engineer all sorts of contraptions throughout WILD Builders & Creators Week. We’ll build boats to set a sail, build and launch rockets, and learn how to build shelters to protect us from the elements while at Mt. Hood.
*This week includes an optional Thursday night overnight at the Mazama Lodge for 8-10 year-olds*

8/6: WILD Mountains & Exploration ($325 base tuition + $50 overnight optional add-on)

Have you ever wondered where Mt. Hood came from? How Mt. St. Helens lost its top? Come to WILD Mountains & Exploration Week to experience the mountains firsthand. We’ll learn about the many layers that make a mountain, how to navigate on and around them, and how humans interact with them through climbing and adventuring on Mt. Hood!
*This week includes an optional Thursday night overnight at the Mazama Lodge for 8-10 year-olds*
