Cascades Academy Independent School PK-12

No School Day Programs

Throughout the school year, Camp CREATE offers No School Day Programs during special days off, such as holidays, conferences, or professional development days. Our programs are available to students at Cascades Academy, as well as families outside of our school community. Similar to the Camp CREATE summer program, we aim to offer programming that is exciting, engaging, and educationally enriching for all of those involved!

Our programs are open to students entering PreKindergarten through Fifth grade, and this cost includes an afternoon snack, field trips, and any special supplies we may use throughout our programs.

Below is a list of supplies that students should bring along to a day of our program:

  • Morning snack
  • Sack lunch that does not need to be heated up in a microwave
  • Backpack to carry personal belongings and lunch
  • Water bottle
  • Warm clothes for time spent outside

Registration for our No School Day programs must be made one week in advance to the start of our program to ensure enrollment. A full reimbursement will be made to any family that cancels one week or more prior to the program’s start date. A cancellation up to three days in advance will receive a 50% reimbursement of the cost of the program, and no reimbursement will be made for cancellations that are made two days or less prior to the program.

To get in touch with our staff during a program, please call the number (541) 678-1597. For any questions or concerns about our programs, please contact the Auxiliary Program Director Colette Boylan at
