Course Description

This Oregon Rafting course for teens is a unique program specifically designed for grieving teens coping with the death of a loved one. During this transformational adventure, participants experience powerful grief work activities woven into the context of the traditional Outward Bound curriculum. Additionally, this course offers students an opportunity to join with a team of others in challenging themselves while exploring some of Oregon’s most renowned wilderness areas.
Students will cross rugged beautiful terrain, and will need to dig deep and discover hidden strength.  The journey begins the moment you are picked up at the Redmond Airport. You will head straight to the wild and scenic Deschutes River where the first days of your trip will be spent building critical skills in teamwork and camp craft. This learning will serve as a foundation and carry over through the remainder of your journey. The wild and scenic Deschutes River will offer your team the chance to learn paddling methods, river hydrology, raft captaining, and safety. 

Course Area

Deschutes River, Oregon – The Deschutes River is a Wild and Scenic designated river that flows north from the Oregon Cascades to the Columbia River and then on to the Pacific Ocean. A popular river for both rafting and fly-fishing, the river is spring-fed, which results in an unusually constant water flow and cold water even in the summer. Excellent geologic evidence is present all around this area. Courses generally travel anywhere from fifty to one hundred miles along the Lower Deschutes depending on age, course length and course.  The environment is a very dry and arid desert, which equals very hot summers. Wildlife in the area includes ospreys, bald eagles, deer, bighorn sheep, rattlesnakes, waterfowl such as mergansers and mallard. {/slider}
