This session has openings.
Have you ever wanted to float down one of the many awesome rivers in Portland’s backyard?  Have you ever wanted to kayak, raft, canoe and Stand Up Paddle Board? This program will take you flat water kayaking on the Columbia River, Paddle rafting on the Clackamas River, Canoeing on the Tualatin River, and SUPing on the Willamette River.  We will meet each day at OES, load up into the School Suburban, and drive to our river of choice for the day. We will contract with local companies who will outfit us with proper PFDs (life jackets) and the craft of choice for the day. There will be 2 guides to 8 campers, and all campers will be required to wear life vets and the appropriate clothing for the weather and water temperatures. Proper instruction and supervision will be given each day to ensure each day is successful.  Participants will be asked to have proper clothing and footwear for each day for both the weather and water conditions. (Clothing and footwear is available for loan upon request).

If you have a program specific question please contact the Experiential Education Coordinator Tom Handel at handelt@oes.edu or 503-416-9359.
