How Our Summer Camp Programs Work
We pick up our R.A.D. campers at 8 a.m. at William E. Miller Elementary School.
We load our gear into the R.A.D. van and we're off to explore one of 50 destinations.
Once at the trailhead, kids put on their backpacks and hit the trail for fun and the adventure of a lifetime!
How to Register
Create your profile on Sawyer before registering. This will give you an idea of what to expect in terms of site-management, and streamline your registration.
Once the registration link is open, you will be able to register your child. This link will be available on our website and in a reminder email. From there, you will see all the vans and the dates that will be operating. Choose a van and begin sign up! Don’t see your desired van or location? Keep checking back throughout the summer. Parents and campers adjust their schedules, meaning seats often become available.
After you have chosen which vans and dates you will be registering for, you will then enter all the important information that we need to know about your child! You’ve seen these forms before - waivers, allergies, etc.
Once you have completed this step, simply check out, and you’re ready for summer!!
Exploring Central Oregon's Forests, Lakes And Streams
R.A.D. Camps is one of the best ways for your child to explore the flora and fauna of Central Oregon- each day is a new adventure at a new destination!
We operate under a special use permit from the United States Forest Service in the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests! This allows campers to visit places they might not otherwise get to visit as well as to places that are more familiar.
You've got questions, and we've got answers. See what R.A.D. parents and guardians have asked.
