SAGE OUTDOOR SUMMER ACTIVITIES (Learn More)
June 15-20: Washington Coast Adventure! (Tuition $400) We are mixing up the formula of the annual Oregon Coast trip this year to explore the even more beautiful Washington Coast! We will explore several areas of Olympic National Park- hiking along the wild and rugged coastline, exploring the vivid tidepools, and marveling at the beauty of the open Pacific. We will also hike the pristine temperate rainforests of the park and gawk at massive trees and crystal waters. Likely, we will also get a little surfing in, go on a scenic ferry ride, and may even take the Twilight tour of Forks, Washington if there aren’t too many teenage vampires around. It all adds up to an unforgettable adventure to kick off your summer vacation! 5th grade and up welcome.
July 7-10: Rafting Fun on the Payette (Tuition $250) This low-key rafting week will have us camping in the Boise National Forest on the South Fork of the Payette River, forging out each day to a new and exciting rafting destination. Likely destinations will be the “Swirly Canyon”, “Main”, and “Caborton” sections of the Payette. In addition to the whitewater thrills during the day, at night we will soak in several hot springs, have lots of fun around the campfire, and hike on nearby trails. No rafting experience necessary, 5th grade and up welcome.
August 3-6: Hot Springs Bike Tour (Tuition $250): Back by popular demand, we are once again staging a big bicycle adventure, starting in the area just west of Ketchum and weaving our way west to Arrowrock reservoir east of Boise. This just so happens to be one of the most hot-spring rich areas of Idaho (also the world), so every day we will soak in all variety of delightful springs. We change camps each day, positioning ourselves close to different springs and great swimming holes. Most of the biking is downhill, the bus carries all of our gear, and there is a “sag wagon” to support anybody who decides they may have bitten off a little too much any given day. The entire trip is on gravel roads, and you are required to provide your own mountain bike in serviceable condition. But the views are spectacular, the riding ideal, and the waters sublime. Riding experience preferred but not required. 5th grade and up welcome.
