Three-day Residential Program

Camp Fire Wilani is piloting a 3-day, 2-night residential, NGSS-aligned outdoor school program at Camp Wilani @Havenroot in Veneta, Oregon in Spring of 2019. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of individual classes and can be tailored to meet specific class needs by adjusting learning content and the inclusion of need-specific elements such as team building facilitation and positive conflict resolution.

Our programs run Monday-Wednesday or Wednesday-Friday

Traveling Day Program

Designed to reduce travel costs and teach students about their local environments, this 3-day program comes to you. Our facilitators select a destination or group of destinations within 30 driving minutes of the school we are serving and provide place based-lessons from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, any three consecutive days Monday-Friday.
