Nature Based Journeys

Cascade Camp

Relax deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. SUP right from camp, go for a hike, and just chill out for a bit. You can be social at the group site just chill at your campsite. And find a more peaceful, calm, and alive part of yourself!

We hold space on a beautiful mountain lake for up to 2 weeks at a time. You can join us on any day, and stay as long as you like (1 night minimum).

On your way out, you have the (highly recommended) option to raft on the White Salmon River with Eric as your guide!

We offer discounts for weekdays and longer stays. Call or text 971-319-1667 for more details!

Private Group Experiences

Bring your group or community out with us!

We provide gear, transportation, and as many or as few of our activities as you want. We're also happy to help set the container or let you hold the space in your own way. Just let us know your specific needs and we’ll take care of the rest!

Oregon Coast Journey

The rugged Oregon Coast, lined with beautiful beaches, rocky cliffs, and deep forests, has a magical feel to it. This Journey offers time and space to explore an incredible piece of it, while the rhythm of the ocean sinks you deep into peace. 

The Oregon Coast Journey Offers yoga, an incredible yet easy hike, and an experience free of worry.

Our camps were created specifically with youth and families in mind. Until 2020, Evolve Wild (then “Forest Dream Oregon”) ran summer camps for students with Japanese backgrounds who were living in Oregon. There were plans for international camps in 2020. We look forward to getting back on track in the near future. Check out our Camps page for the latest.


Our Sittings offer flexibility and tons of free time, and we can offer plenty of personal and group options to go deeper into the experience, if you want. 

We occupy a group of sites on an incredible piece of land, typically an alpine lake or another body of water, for up to 2 weeks. You are free to arrive on any day we are here, and stay for as long as you like. There are plenty of things to do, but it’s more about everything that you’re not doing while you’re here.

These are our most accessible offerings, especially on short notice and during the peak season.


Our Journeys are multi-day experiences along a specific landscape  timeframe. They have a set start and end date, and the group remains together for the duration. Journeys are often overnight river trips, or at campgrounds which require advanced reservations. 

Journeys require a bit more planning and preparation than joining a sitting, and advanced reservations are encouraged.

What we Do

Evolve Wild is here to you get people out in nature and do a lot of cool stuff. The hope is for you to find lasting moments of peace and beauty so you can open to all that, and allow it to shape you. We don’t want you to have to worry about anything while you’re with us. 

We provide a diverse, delicious menu, gear, safety and guided activities. Find out what you can expect while you are with us!

Choose Your Own Experience Agreement

Our experiences were designed to provide the set and setting so you can have a deeper experience of your own choosing. If you come out with us, you can tailor your experience to what you’re looking for by expecting, and agreeing to, the following: 

You have your own site, with distance and trees between your neighbors. 

You can chill out on your own or relax at the group (social) site, where there is always at least one guide, within reasonable hours anywayWhether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, you get to decide how much you want to engage with other people!

Access to nature may be one of the biggest hidden privileges in our society today. 

We welcome, and do our best, to offer our experiences to people of all skin colors, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, beliefs, languages, religions, SES, and political affiliations. Your experience is about you and your relationship with the world around you. We’ll do our best to hold others to those standards. 

And always know that if you don’t feel respected you can talk with us about it, or disengage by leaving the social area and going to your own site (and, of course, talking with us later). 

How you engage is up to you!

We offer a lot of ways to engage with the experience, and some of it pushes people’s boundaries. Whether it’s yoga, rafting, paddle boarding, sharing your intentions for coming out, or checking in with the group about where you’re at, you get to decide what you do and what you don’t do. 

Even if you’re good with all that, there are other things you can do to create a deeper shift, both before you come out and while you’re here. The difference between what people think they will do at first glance vs. what they actually do while they are going through it can change dramatically! Our best advice is to stay open to what arises while you’re here. 

Socially, the vibe is laid back. 

I (Eric) talk about lots of things on this site, but it’s more just to let you know where I’m coming from and why I went to all the trouble to create Evolve Wild. I don’t get preachy or judgmental, and try to keep that stuff out of group conversation.

If you’re looking for deeper conversation, have questions about some of the stuff I talk about, or just want to trip out, we’re happy to go there. But there’s no requisite talking points or anything like that. 

This is not a party / loud scene!

We aim to get away from modern-day distractions to allow the world around us to speak to us. But it’s a soft language, and easily drowned out. We discourage heavy drinking, loud music, and motors. We ask that you respect others on the experience by refraining from such things as well.

This is meant to be a small, but important, step along your larger journey. It’s not about what we think you should be doing, it’s about you doing what you feel as it arises, and allowing the experience to unfold.
