At Adventure WILD Summer Day Camp, we believe that authentic learning takes place when children are able to investigate and interact with the world around them. 

Nature, art, science, and play are the building blocks that campers ages 4-10 will use to explore the vibrant life and amazing mysteries found in surrounding green spaces. Through thematic and guided activities with experienced educators, your child will laugh, learn, and make memories to last a lifetime. Plus, every camp includes rock climbing at the Mazama Mountaineering Center and a full day at the Mazama Lodge on Mount Hood! This year, select camps for 8-10 year olds will head on an overnight adventure at the Mazama Lodge at the end of the week.

Location & Description

Adventure WILD Summer Day Camp is based at the Mazama Mountaineering Center, located on the corner of SE Stark and SE 43rd in Portland, Oregon.  There is a parking lot and ample street parking available for drop-off and pick-up. From there, we’ll explore the outdoors, learning about urban nature and the vibrant life in the beautiful greenspaces around us, including the 26-acre Laurelhurst Park and the 196-acre Mount Tabor Park for older participants. Each themed week includes components in nature, science, and art, tailored to the ages and interests of that week’s participants. Plus, every camp week includes a full-day trip to the Mazama Lodge on Mount Hood and rock climbing at the Mazama Mountaineering Center. Select camps for older participants include an overnight at the Mazama Lodge on Mount Hood at the end of the week.

Adventure WILD Summer Day Camp serves children ages 4-10. Children must be at least 4 years old, based on their age at the start of the camp week.

The Mazama Lodge, built in 1960, is a beautiful wooden lodge nestled on US Forest Service Land between Timberline Lodge and Government Camp on Mount Hood. Thanks to the careful stewardship of Mazama members, the Mazama Lodge remains a functional and beautiful campsite which welcomes thousands of visitors each year, from summer camps to wedding parties to Mazama instructional programs.
