About Steppin' Out

Explore Northwest Oregon’s magnificent coast, mountains and rivers with the Steppin’ Out program and make new friends along the way. Each morning, Steppin’ Out participants will launch from base camp at the 4-H Center just northwest of Salem, OR. You will be able to choose from several different day-hike options for the first two days. Each hike will range from easy to moderately difficult and average between four to eight miles round trip, giving you an opportunity to experience Oregon’s lush vegetation and breathtaking landscapes. You will return to base camp each evening to share dinner and get better acquainted with members of Service, Leadership and Sustainability (service-based Jump Start program) and Ohana (cultural-based Jump Start program). On the third day, Steppin’ Out participants will take a white-water rafting trip down the White Salmon River. It promises to be an exhilarating day with midday swimming, beautiful surroundings, thrilling rapids and, of course, good company. Preface your Willamette experience with fun new friends and adventures!
