Join Caldera for Public Camp Tours This Summer

Wish you could go to summer camp again? This summer, you can! Caldera is offering two opportunities (Saturday, July 22 and Saturday, August 12 from 11am-1pm by reservation only) for the public to tour the Arts Center and see summer camp programs in session.

During free public tours, guests will be welcomed with a general overview of Caldera and programs and taken on a tour of the property, including visiting classes. Additionally, guests are invited to join campers for lunch in the
summer kitchen.

Every summer, over 150 students and staff pack their bags and head out to our Arts Center on Blue Lake (about 16 miles outside of Sisters) for three eight- to ten-day camp sessions arranged by age group. They immerse themselves in various arts workshops, explore nature, build community, make new friends and dive into the depths of their unique creative voices.

Each day at camp, youth work with professional teaching artists, naturalists, and mentors. Arts courses vary and may include music/audio production, visual arts, photography, dance, theater, filmmaking, comics, drumming and creative writing. Youth also participate in community circles, campfires, nature hikes, challenge courses and other outdoor activities. Together, we build a supportive and creative atmosphere that connects with the stunningly beautiful outdoor environment.

Reservations are required for Camp Tours and space is limited. To secure your spot, please RSVP to Natalie Whitlock, annual giving manager, at or at 503-937-3075. Tours will
fill up quickly.
