Meadows will again present summer mountain camps for young people this summer. The four-day camps are designed for young people to immerse themselves, explore, delight in and learn respect for the mountain. Campers build self-confidence and develop positive attitudes by learning to succeed at many new activities. Transportation from the Portland area and Hood River is included.
