FlipSide Eco-Adventure Camp is Ashland's only 5 day camp blending high adventure with environmental stewardship. While participating in exciting outdoor challenges, students will explore natural eco-systems, develop outdoor skills and gain self-confidence.
Vincent Smith, PhD Environmental Studies professor is bringing Eco-Adventure to FlipSide! Combining his passion for the outdoors & sustainability Vince comes to us with a lifetime of experience. When Tamara Smith (FlipSide co-owner) met Vince 16 years ago on an island off the Florida Keys he had slept over 500 nights in a tent. Outdoor adventure was in his blood. As an avid scouter Vince traveled to 48 or the 50 states camping, hiking, climbing, rafting, canoeing, skiing, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, sailing, SCUBA diving, spelunking, and adventuring outdoors in whatever capacity he could. Together Vince & Tamara have enjoyed guiding kids & teens in adventure camps across the country.
Along the way Vince picked up degrees & training in Plant Ecology, Environmental Studies, Environmental Science & Education. Teaching is his greatest passion. From teaching college students at the Center for Sustainability Farm to teaching Kids in the waters of Catalina island, to Guiding teens though Minnesota's Boundary Waters, Vince empowers people to act as stewards while showing them a world worth protecting.
Join us this summer for FlipSide's Eco-Adventure Camp. The only camp of it's kind in the Rogue Valley.
