    Thank you for helping to spread the word about our summer nature camp for kids going into 3rd grade to those going into 6th grade. Please note that this camp is offered by FRIENDS OF Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. We are the private non-profit organization that helps to support the mission of the refuge. Thanks, Michael.

    Thanks so much, Michael, for listing Friends of Outdoor School’s Adventure WILD! We’re excited to unveil our new online registration system and a new camp director! (but not new to the camp). PS – if you’re looking for a discount, use your Chinook Book coupon for $50 off, or register by March 16 for $35 off! — Brina

      Thank you, Brina. We usually can only afford to sign our son up for one week, and he chose a geology camp though Audubon.
