There’s still time to get outdoors and have fun this summer with park camps. Explore the area’s trails, water and animals at one of two weeklong camps held in July.

Nature Survival Camp, July 15-19, takes campers on the water and to the woods, deep into the park and other sites, as they explore and practice skills to survive and thrive in nature, including a two-night camping trip at the beach. This camp is open to students entering seventh and eighth grades. The cost is $145.

Nature Adventure Camp, held July 22-26, offers a week’s worth of adventures at the park and nearby, as well as an overnight in Fort Clatsop. Nature Adventure Camp is open to students entering fourth grade through sixth grade. The cost is $135.

Hours for Nature Survival Camp are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday & Tuesday, with a 9 a.m. drop-off on Wednesday and 11 a.m. pick up on Friday for the two-day camping trip at the beach. Hours for Nature Adventure Camp are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. For the Thursday overnight, drop off is at 9 a.m. Thursday and pickup is 11 a.m. Friday.
