Catlin Gabel School invites campers from across the Portland metro area to spend the summer with us! Every week we offer a range of camp activities, including day camps, sports, music, arts, academics, technology, and more.

Our 67-acre wooded campus is conveniently located just off of Highway 26 and is only minutes from downtown. Camps run from June 27-August 12 and are open to any child from preschool (age 4) to high school. We also host an array of partner camps that are run by professional organizations. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sports Camps

Sports camps include basketball, fencing, and a sports spectacular camp, where campers participate in a variety of sports, games, challenges, and activities. More sports activities are available through partner camps.

Arts & Activities Camps

Campers can choose from camps that focus on photography, drawing, paper marbling, book making, jewelry making, crafting, and DJing. For campers looking to be outdoors, there is a weeklong farm experience on Sauvie Island.

Academic & Tech Camps

Summer is a great time for rising seniors to get started on college essays or for younger campers to explore different writing genres or how math is used in real life. Campers can also build rockets, light sabers, or create art using simple mathematical techniques.
