Local Forest Grove Adventure | Voyages

Join us in exploring your new backyard!

This *NEW* Voyage is catered to students who are new to the outdoors and offers an array of activities all accessible within an hour's drive of Forest Grove, OR. Explore the beautiful Oregon coast, bike along the historic Banks-Vernonia Trail, get your hands dirty at our local B-Street Farm, and hangout or standup-paddle-board at nearby Hagg Lake. You will be based out of Stub Stewart State Park adjacent to Forest Grove, and sleep in glamorous campsites and cabins, cook delicious meals, and build a supportive community.
