NEW! For 2020, Adventure Treks will offer an eight-day trip for middle schoolers who are looking for their first foray into the outdoors, but aren’t ready to head out for two to three weeks. This introductory trip will take place in the Pacific Northwest and will be jam-packed with adventure. A day hike will help our community form as we get to know each other among beautiful scenery. Then it’s off to Mt. Hood National Forest, where we’ll hop on mountain bikes and zoom down flowy trails. (Don’t worry if you’ve never mountain biked before—the trails are perfect for both beginners and those with experience!) We’ll venture into the world-famous Mount St. Helens Ape Cave Lava Tubes before attempting a summit of the 8,366-foot-tall mountain itself! We’ll take on the fun, beginner-friendly rapids of the Klickitat River in sit-on-top kayaks, and then finish our trip with a thrilling rafting trip down the White Salmon River—one of our all-time favorite activities.

*The Pacific Northwest Discovery itinerary will be finalized by January 2020, if not sooner.
