Rising Kindergartners–5th

About Classic Camp

Nestled in the heart of the University of Oregon campus, Duck Trails Classic Camp takes advantage of our university location by providing a full-day variety camp program, including recreational activities in the Student Recreation Center facilities. By blending scheduled programming with free-time play, campers get the opportunity to learn skills, develop new interests, and engage in positive social interactions in a friendly, extended family type environment.

Who can attend?

Open to all children who will be entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall.

When is the camp and how long does it last?

* In Session 2 there will be no camp on July 4 and 5, in observance of Independence Day.

What activities will take place?
