Program #4745ENZ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 9 - 11 years of age.

Coastal adventure awaits you and your grandchild on Oregon’s diverse and exciting southern coast. Hands-on educational opportunities will open up new worlds of natural history and unique geology for all. You’ll be busy having fun together as you learn how the dunes were formed, hike through trails, learn about a local Native American tribe, fly kites, and make s’mores!


Highlights

• Spend time on the beach touching marine life at tide pools, playing on the beach and toasting marshmallows around a bonfire.
• Fish on a wild and remote section of the Umpqua River, where you will catch and release Smallmouth Bass.
• Feel the spray of the Rogue River on your face as you race up 32 miles to Lucas Lodge, and then down 32 miles back to Gold Beach. Be sure to keep a lookout for osprey, sea lions, bald eagles, black bears, and other wildlife.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles per day on mostly flat terrain. One nature hike on dirt, gravel, and sand with moderately steep inclines. Must be able to keep up with grandchild.

Coordinated by Southwestern Oregon Community College.
