Day Trips

We loving hosting day trips!

These are awesome trips that usually cost a minimal fee (to pay for gas and any applicable admission fees) and allow seniors from around the Columbia River Gorge to see new sights, enjoy a day of fun, and get to meet new people.

Current Trips

It is spring at MCSC, and we are ready to travel.

If you haven’t heard, we now have a 12-passenger van we can use for senior trips. We received a transportation grant from the State of Oregon. I am excited as we can now offer the senior trips at an affordable rate. I hope to run at least 6 or 7 trips a year, maybe more.  Before we had this van, the major cost of a trip was renting a bus. Last year we wanted to take a bus to Bend to visit the High Desert Museum; the cost was over $80 per person. With our new van we can go to Bend for $35 per person.

Current Planned Senior Trips: 

  • Monday, May 13. Depart at 7:30 a.m. Return at 5 p.m. Cost $35. We will go to the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon. The cost for the trip including museum admission is $35. Sign up at the desk. Lunch is not included in the cost of the trip.
  • Tuesday, May 28th. The Dalles Neon Sign Museum, and The Dalles Firehouse Museum. Depart 10 a.m. Return 12 p.m.  The cost is $10 per person including museum entrance. 
  • Wednesday, June 5th. The Sternwheeler expedition Tour in Cascade Locks. Followed by the Bonneville Dam Fish Hatchery and Sturgeon Ponds. Depart 9:30 return 3:30. The cost is $50 per person. 
  • Monday, June 24th. Maryhill Museum and Stonehenge. Depart 10 a.m. return 3 p.m. The cost is $25. We will travel to Rufus, Oregon for a wonderful lunch at Bob’s Texas T-Bone (not included in the price).

I am open to any suggestions for trips. Drop your suggestion at the front desk. Anyone who is interested in becoming our official trip coordinator, please contact Rob Garrett (541-993-3170).
