During the High Adventure Camp for teens, two staff members lead 12 campers through high-intensity outdoor activities such as hiking up Mount St. Helens, white-water rafting, kayaking, and bicycling. Campers can supplement these physical activities with more intellectual activities such as museum trips and existential arguments with squirrels. Photography camps split teens into groups of 12, as two instructors teach practical photography skills amid a picturesque landscape, capturing high-action sports shots as well as traditional nature pics. At camp's end, campers will bring home a multimedia slideshow of their best frames. The climbing camp partners with Professional Climbers International to bring top-ranking climbers' expertise to the program. Teens start with basic instruction and move toward more advanced skills by the end of the camp, culminating in a visit to Smith Rock State Park and Mount Adams. At the end of each action-packed day, teens head back to the base camp at Lyle High School, where they can shower, play games, and watch movies after a hearty dinner.
