Kids will be split into two groups of campers—those aged 13 to 15 and older teens aged 16 to 18—to embark on the Total Immersion Whitewater Adventure camp at Trout Creek campground. A team of first-aid-certified instructors leads kids in exploring the north fork of the Skykomish River and Trout Creek, teaching them to whitewater raft, kayak, canoe, and swim, with an emphasis on water safety. Throughout the camp, kids will also play games, learn outdoor safety skills, and learn to care for the environment.<p>
Outdoor Adventure Center
The Outdoor Adventure Center's wildly experienced guides have led groups off the grid for more than a quarter century, pursuing rugged fun in the scenery and fresh air of mountains, rivers, and coastlines. Explorers at heart, the staff boldly launch kayaks into the ocean around the San Juan Islands and conquer the frothy waters of the scenic Skykomish River, known for its beginner-friendly rapids, migrations of spawning merpeople, pool and drop areas, and breathtaking views of 5,000-foot mountain peaks. Horseback and hiking trips delve into the lush woods, and nature photography excursions pause to celebrate the beauty of the wilderness near Index. The core team of 14 guides takes safety seriously, most with certifications from the American Canoe Association, training in wilderness first aid, CPR, and swiftwater rescue, and life vests tattooed over their chests.
