Youth Programs

Outdoor Fun with Friends

At the Wenatchee River Institute, we believe the best place to spend a day off is outside. Our youth camps focus on connecting youth to the natural world, making new friends, and having fun! WRI's camps are offered throughout the year and topics can be seasonally specific. Students will learn about the world around us, play fun games, explore the trails on the WRI campus, spot birds, make art, and more!

We want every child to have a chance to learn and play outside with us. Our youth camps are priced in the Pay What You Can structure to make camps as affordable as possible to all families. It is our hope that some families will have the ability to pay a little more to offset the costs for families who cannot. When you are checking out, there is a box to type in the amount you can pay.

Safety Precautions: WRI will continue to monitor state and local guidance around COVID and may update our practices if recommendations change. For programs that have both indoor and outdoor components such as camps, we prefer that participants are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. In the event of any COVID exposures, we will be following the current CDC guidelines.
