Camp Update: Thank you for all of your support of Fall Camps! With the number of COVID cases increasing in our community, we will not be holding camps in December for the health and safety of our campers, staff, and community. Check back for updates or sign up for our e-newsletter to hear when camps return in 2021.


Join small groups of campers and Wenatchee River Institute staff for a new version of camp! We will spend our afternoons outdoors, exploring Wenatchee River Institute and the surrounding park, leading us through forested habitats, along the river, and through grassy meadows. Participants will investigate and learn about the world around us, play fun games, and do art activities.   


Camps will take place 12:00pm-5:00pm, two afternoons per week. If your camper needs to participate in live school sessions during that time, we can accommodate that need.


We are experimenting with a new fee structure for these camps: Pay What You Can. We know that COVID has had a financial impact on many families, and we hope this makes 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.

Extra Hours:

Additional care hours are being offered to extend camp time one hour earlier and later for families who are interested. Pre-camp care will take place 11:00am-12:00pm and post-camp care will take place 5:00pm-6:00pm. The cost is $15 for pre-camp care and $15 for post-camp care. These can be added to your ticket when you sign up.

How to Register:

Register for each week you’d like to attend. Registration for each week is found on the first listed day of camp for the week.

Safety Precautions:

The ability to offer these camps will be dependent on Chelan County staying in at least Phase 1.5 in Safe Start WA. 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.

If camp events you have already registered for are cancelled, the Wenatchee River Institute will refund 100% of the registration fees. If you have questions about COVID-19 and the Wenatchee River Institute, please call us at 509-548-0181 or email us at
