STARBASE Camp Rilea has been serving the Northern Oregon coast since 2019. Our site is located at Camp Rilea in Warrenton, mere minutes from the beautiful Pacific coastline and Columbia River. Camp Rilea is a premier training site for many military units, police officers, SWAT teams and disaster response agencies.
STARBASE is located on the south end of the post in a newly remodeled school building, updated with the latest technology. The schoolhouse is designed with a classroom for the kids to conduct all kinds of fun, hands-on experiments in STEM. Additionally, there is a computer lab where kids can learn about computer aided design, 3D printing, laser printing, and physics simulations. The acreage around the schoolhouse provides ample space for the kids to learn about navigation and nature. As an additional bonus, the school is often visited by a large herd of majestic Elk.
Currently STARBASE Camp Rilea serves 5th graders during the school year, with development of a program to serve 6th graders in process. Each year STARBASE staff conduct a series of STEM summer camps for children going into grades 3rd-8th. After school programs will be added to our offerings soon. Outreach programs conducted at local schools and markets are also planned for the future.
STARBASE Camp Rilea currently sees schools from the following towns:
Astoria – Lewis and Clark Elementary
Warrenton and Hammond – Warrenton Grade School
Seaside and Gearhart – Pacific Ridge Elementary
Knappa – Hilda Lahti Elementary
Jewell – Jewell Elementary
STARBASE Camp Rilea is currently in talks with Southern Washington schools to bring more STEM to more kids.
