Cascades Academy Independent School PK-12
Life on the River



The Middle School returned from a successful and fun-filled outing to the Sycan River in southern Oregon for their traditional canoe adventure. We were graced with near perfect river flows and outstanding weather - but for the middle of the night thunderstorm on our last night! Our students did a wonderful job commanding their canoes and worked well together across the board - whether setting up camp, cooking their own meals, or solving some problem on the river during the day. Students also reflected thoughtfully on their responsibilities for themselves, others and the environment. Additionally, students talked through issues around the Klamath Basin, anadromous fish, recreation vs. environment, and myriad other topics related to this unique place.
