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!

Our youth camps are in the Pay What You Can structure in hopes 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 are struggling financially. When you are checking out, there is a box to type in the amount you can pay.

Safety Precautions: Increased social distancing and hygiene will be put in place. Camp will take place primarily outdoors, and campers and staff will wear masks. Each camp group will be based at different locations throughout our campus and will not interact. Daily temperature and health screenings will be conducted.

Check back here for upcoming camps and registration news. The best way to find out about camp registration is to join our mailing list or follow our social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).
