At Crux Rock Climbing Gym, more than 9,000 square feet of climbing walls challenge guests as they tackle roofs, overhangs, and bouldering caves. Roped climbers are secured with auto-locking belay devices called grigris, allowing them to safely explore Crux’s many routes knowing their ropes are in extra-good hands. Climbs range from simple, juggy routes with easy-to-grasp holds to complex ascents that may require careful footwork or the flying leap of a dyno. Following a workout on Crux’s towering walls or in one of its three bouldering areas, visitors can dig into Hawaiian, Polynesian, and Asian cuisine at Ron's Island Grill, the gym's onsite restaurant. The gym also hosts summer camps, parties, and nights for female climbers only.
At the Oregon Photography School, a duo of skilled shutterbugs with a combined 27 years of experience imparts the secrets of snapping and manipulating artistic images to pupils of all stripes. Vernon T. Williams has conveyed the dignity of famous subjects, including two presidential candidates and a Nobel Prize winner, and his work has appeared in The Economist and other national magazines. Jon Christopher Meyers boasts an eclectic commercial-work portfolio, with recent work including the Eugene Ballet Company's midair athleticism and hawks flying midair from the Cascades Raptor Center.
The school draws on Williams's and Meyers's rich backgrounds to inform intensive workshops on everything from the basics of film- and digital-camera manipulation to portrait photography's finer techniques, such as hypnotizing a subject with nothing but a piece of string tied to a lens cap. After an in-studio or on-location class, an online student/instructor-review tool continues the relationship, letting students post their shots for ongoing feedback and for inspirational haikus from their instructor and fellow photographers.
Glass doors line two lofted floors at The Lesson Factory's headquarters, barely able to contain the harmonies held within. In training rooms throughout the facility, instructors—some with degrees as high as the graduate level—guide aspiring musicians of all ages toward their music-making goals with programs geared to individualized learning. Students choose from rock and classical instruments, learning how to form chords on a guitar, keep steady rhythms on drums, or nobly play violin on a sinking boat. Thanks to a steady schedule of blues jams for adults and recitals for kids, all budding musicians get the chance to show off their skills to an audience on a regular basis.
It never hurts to be prepared. Oregon CPR offers lifesaving classes for healthcare professionals and laypeople alike, granting two-year CPR, basic life support (BLS), and first aid certification in one-day classes. Teachers, coaches, camp staff, and professional gaspers may be required to seek CPR certification. They'll also learn to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). The BLS certification course also incorporates CPR, and is designed for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, therapists, and medical students.
At Eugene Piano Academy, students from preschool age to adulthood learn new musical abilities or polish rusty skills with one-on-one guidance, group lessons, and summer camps led by university-trained instructors. Director Susane Reis and a staff of eminently qualified music teachers draw from years of performance, academic study, and teaching to help students harness their creative energies and build strong musical reading fundamentals and playing techniques.
