The Twin Lakes Youth Wilderness Campout is one of the highlights of the year. For over 20 years, Umpqua Watersheds has been taking youth on a 3 day, 2 night camping adventure. Youth 12-17 years old are invited to an unaccompanied weekend of fun in the lakes and lessons in science. Youth under 12 years old are welcome to attend as well with an adult chaperone. Guest educators share their knowledge on botany, astronomy, wildlife biology and other topics in natural resources. We hike, we swim, we share stories around the campfire and prepare all of our meals in the outdoors. The campsite is located about 1 mileĀ  from the parking spot. Gear available for those who need it.

The event takes place on the final weekend of July every year. Members of other organizations are invited to attend as well.

If you know a youth who loves the outdoors, be sure to get them involved with this event! The memories made around the campfire and the lake are truly unforgettable. Contact our AmeriCorps for more information and an application!
