Coyle Outside was founded in 2010 by Dan Coyle. Dan has 20 years experience working with youth leading multiweek wilderness expeditions, instructing primitive and survival skills, climbing, mountain biking, surfing and canyoneering.

We believe that learning and growth (as well as a beautiful, rich life) is made through taking risks, being ok with being uncomfortable and embracing the bumps and bruises rather than avoiding them.  Our courses are never reckless but encourage students to practice, practice, practice the skills of good judgement over simply following a prescribed procedure.  We don't teach our students to be rebels but we do teach them to think critically.

We want to work with families who want to take chances and stretch themselves. We want kids to leave our programs feeling like they had to generate some courage and that they pushed themselves to do something that would not have happened on its own.  We want kids to leave with stories to tell.


Register for Summer 2018 Outdoor Camps starting April 9th!

Coyle Outside, Tracker's Earth, Lake Oswego Community Rowing and Alder Creek Kayak have various camps throughout the summer. Register at LOPARKS.COM
