Big summer fun! An introductory adventure camp in the islands, mountains and rainforest of the Pacific Northwest! Summer ski, sea kayak, rock climb and backpack! No experience necessary!


Our Pacific Northwest middle school camp begins among the soaring, moss-covered trees of the Olympic National Park. The trip's first backpack spans three days and climbs from coastal forests to Lena Lake, where we camp in the shadow of twin peaks called The Brothers. The rain forests, beaches and mountains of the Olympics make the region one of the most unique on Earth, and the ideal setting to kick off our adventure! Our journey continues with two epic days of rock climbing in North Bend, where where we rope up and tackle amazing climbs surrounded by beautiful wilderness.


Skiing and snowboarding in the summer? YES! Mt. Hood's legendary Palmer Glacier holds snow 365 days per year, offering us the opportunity for two days of skiing and riding in sunshine and 60-degree weather. This is one of Bold Earth's highest-rated activities anywhere! The glacier attracts snow-sport enthusiasts from around the world, and is home to numerous summer ski and snowboard camps. Mt. Hood's runs are fun for more experienced skiers and riders, but Trip Leaders will help beginners learn on easier slopes. Alternate activities can be arranged for those not comfortable on the snow.


We take a ferry north to the famous San Juan Islands for four days of biking, sea kayaking and community service. While paddling through the Pacific, we keep our eyes open for sea lions, orca whales, bald eagles and porpoises. Our adventures take us from Lopez Island to Orcas Island, where we’ll camp near the shores of Moran Lake and work on a trail-building project with local park rangers. Bold Earth's middle school travel camp is the perfect combination of adventure, leadership and community service.


Our last activity is in breathtaking Spider Meadow, where we’ll camp in a wildflower-dotted basin under the shadow of ice-capped peaks. This incredible backpack gives us the chance to practice all the wilderness skills we’ve learned over the previous three weeks, while savoring our last days together. A hike to the glacier above Spider Meadow offers amazing 360-degree views and serves as an epic finale to an amazing three weeks!

I really enjoyed my experience on Wild Coast Discovery so I just wanted to say thank you. Bold Earth did a very nice job with communication with everyone, which made the transition so much easier. All in all it was one of the most fun learning experiences I will probably every have. 

PARENTS, Heidi & Brad: Incredibly pleased with the Bold Earth Wild Coast Discovery program. Great opportunity for young people and the communication with the organization was excellent. The leaders were caring, considerate and helped Cora to push beyond challenges. Communication and feedback was excellent.
