Nature Camps

Girl and boy at Fishing Camp

​Fishing events

Fishing Events held in Cascades Gateway Park are on hold during COVID-19. The City of Salem partners with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to periodically provide free family fishing events to the community. Since these events are free, the activities are on the Events calendar associated with our Facebook page.

Special events with Park Ranger Mike

Park Ranger Mike hosts public activities such as an evening Owl Prowl or Junior Ranger Camp at Minto-Brown throughout the year.

Nature camps

Through a partnership with Coyle Outside, youth can enroll in camps focused on activities like primitive fishing, wilderness survival, and more. Participants need to dress appropriately for the outdoors, to get dirty, and have fun!
