About Location To limit transport our Apprenticeships currently pick-up and drop-off at the 3-creeks Natural Area (7300 SE Harmony Rd, Milwaukie, OR). Limiting transport is related to our chosen health procedures. We will continue to evalate this and if the global or local health situation changes, we may add transport to further wildneress sites.

Choose Your Schedule

When choosing a schedule, be sure your child can make all or most of the weekends. Due to group size limits, we do not allow switching between schedules.
