RAD CAMPS

For the summer of 2022, there will be no bus transportation to/from camp and all camps will be run Sunday through Friday.

Big Lake’s RAD Camps are overnight, fun, outdoor adventures, specifically designed for 13-17 year olds. With trained and skilled outdoor professional staff, campers will make life-long friends and learn higher level skills specific to their chosen activity. 

Some RAD Camps are based at the Big Lake campus while others are based offsite at locations such as Smith Rock State Park, the Deschutes River, the Central Oregon Cascades, and bike trails throughout Central Oregon.

Sharing stories about ourselves was the most meaningful part of this week on RAD Rock Climbing. Practicing giving affirmations while we climbed helped me feel so much better about myself! Thanks for the totally RAD week!

“I love the confidence that you had in me. It was amazing and I have so many new ideas now for my leadership position at school!”

No matter what camp you choose, you will be sure to enjoy story-telling, group cooking, star gazing, wilderness education classes, water fights and daily life on the trail/river/lake or crag. RAD is not for the faint of heart! While we absolutely love adventuring with first-timers, we do recommend that campers actively practice good fitness before attending camp and have a strong interest in the chosen activity.

NEW for 2022 – Leadership Academy (ages 15-17)

Leadership Academy campers will join our Big Lake staff for the last few days of staff training to participate in some outstanding leadership training and get a taste of several different areas of camp. This may be the best way yet for 15- to 17-year-olds to learn what it’s like to be a staff member at Big Lake. Leadership Academy campers may be invited to stay for the first part of Junior 1 to continue in their Leadership Academy experience.
