Q Center Outdoor Extravaganza!

Come join Q Center and Cascadia Expeditions for an exciting day of outdoor adventure fun along the Wild and Scenic Sandy River! Learn some basic rock climbing techniques, embark on a mellow Sandy River float, demo an inflatable kayak or participate in family fun and games. Cascadia Expeditions is generously donating a portion of the proceeds from the day to benefit Q Center’s programs and services. We’ll have plenty of delicious food including a family and vegetarian friendly BBQ at the end of the day…and all are welcome!
