All-in adventure

Pack your bags and get ready for that "you won't believe what I did this summer" excitement. 

Preview the full summer schedule!

So much to see and do, all summer long! With the help of the at-a-glance schedule, you're one step closer to finding your adventure friends.

Our Camp Staff

Learn from the best with a staff that has decades of experience, a passion for all areas of science and the outdoors, plus wilderness and survival certifications (and they’re fun, too!) 


Getting to-and-from camp is a breeze! All camps pick up and drop off from the museum in Portland, leaving lots of time for bus sing-a-longs on the way there and re-living memories on the way home.

Find trails to blaze and friends along the way

Looking for Day Camps & Classes?

Coding, drones, crime solving, wizardry, oh my! All that and a squad to smile with all week long. 

Outdoor School

OMSI's Camp Gray and Camp Hancock serve over 5,000 students during the fall and spring for Outdoor School programming where students gain hands-on experience in the outdoors, plus memories of exploring with their peers and their parents.
