Come get your hike on along one of Oregon's most beautiful rivers, and get your climb on at one of the best climbing venues in the world! We'll head down to the Metolius River, just outside of Camp Sherman, OR. We'll wind our way along this pristine river, known for its abundant salmon and incredible waterfall that spills straight out of the hillside from an underground spring. Afterward, we'll check out the nearby fish hatchery and head to a riverside campground to sleep under the high desert stars.

We'll wake up early to beat the heat and go to Smith Rock, outside of Terrebonne in central Oregon. We'll don helmets and climbing shoes and take advantage of the weekday to climb some of the park's most popular routes. This is a perfect way for middle school students to learn the basics of climbing OR for experienced climbers to come out and test their strength on real rock with experienced guides.

Cost of this trip is $55 and covers most food, instruction, transportation, and permits. This trip is open to all students ages 11-14. Students do not need prior experience, but they should be in good physical condition and able to follow directions.
