The Oregon Park District is partnering with organizations in Oregon to offer new programming to the community.

Stronghold Camp and Retreat Center has teamed up with the Oregon Park District to offer a unique opportunity this spring.

Stronghold Dine, Climb or Tour program is for any age and will take place on Sunday, April 15. Pre-registration is required by April 9.

When registering you choose the Dine & Tour option or the Dine & Climb option. This makes the program great for all ages!

Lunch will be served at 1 p.m. by Stronghold’s kitchen staff. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

After lunch you can enjoy a 1-hour tour through the castle. The tour includes information about the Strong family, the process of building their castle and brief touches of depression era history.

Attendees also get a glimpse into castle structure and medieval life. Cost for the tour option is $15 for residents of the Oregon Park District and $18 for non-residents.

For a more adventurous experience, a climb is offered after lunch. This activity will include the high ropes course with an exciting zip line finish.

All participants must be 12 years and older for the climb. Cost is $25/resident and $30/non-resident.

The deadline to register for this program is April 9. Registration can be completed at Nash Recreation Center, 304 S. Fifth Street in Oregon or by phone, 815-732-3101.
