Warm Springs: 2019 Summer Youth Program August 25 – 30
Explore! Trek! Paddle! Tribal youth, ages 14-18, are encouraged to apply to participate on two amazing outdoor experiences in August. This includes a backpacking course to be held August 26-28 on the Warm Springs Reservation or a Deschutes Rafting Course to be held August 26-30. Prior to departing for the courses, a joint community gathering will be held for all participants on August 25. There is no cost to tribal youth participants. Please register by August 16. This program creates tribal specific courses, incorporating significant aspects of the Warm Springs culture and history with Northwest Outward bound School outdoor education and leadership skill development. The goal is to inspire youth to connect with tribal lands, igniting their interest in the outdoors and creating a pathway to outdoor education, advocacy or industry.
