TreeHouse Ziplines

Treehouse Institute of Arts & Culture

Your Life Out on a Limb!

The Treehouse Institute, established over the summer of 1996, is the only place in the world that offers avocational instruction in basic engineering, design and construction methods for building treehouses. There are also plenty of other things to learn and have fun with here. We are like a summer camp for whole family. There are many educational, and adventurous, vacation sites in Southern Oregon, but only one where you can, lit-treely, "go out on a limb"... and have so much fun to learn something while you're there. Summer thematic school sessions, in majors and alltreenut majors, run from two to four days.

The courses are tailored to include everyone in family enjoyment. Our experienced certified staff give zip line extravaganzas, guided horse back riding, treehouse construction, easily arranged. The Arts& Crafts courses are taught by local artists on site here at the lodge. The one that requires the shortest amount of time to arrange is the very popular tile mosaic class. We also have a performance stage that can be used by kids quite often just for playing, but not so much as the organized classes.

Out'n'About is a Veritable Treehouse Wonderland!

We want you to please understand that although we do everything in our power to insure safety, there is an inherent risk associated with visiting a total of 18 different treehouses and a host of platforms (a few almost 40+ feet up the tree), a few child size forts, seven swinging bridges (8' to 32' off the ground and 12' to 90' long), five swings plus the Giant Tarzan, 20 flights of stairs, four ladders, a bunch of horses and a gaggle of chickens, swimming pool uneven ground and an unbeatable collection of zipline courses with over a mile of TreehouseZiplines.


Treehouse Institute of Takilma

The internationally famous Out 'n' About Treesort has branched out once again, and has added the Treehouse Institute of Takilma, a high school that hangs from the branches in an oak grove in Takilma, Oregon. The picturesque little valley is nestled in the south west corner of the state among the Siskiyou Mountains, outside of Cave Junction and just below the wilderness headwaters of the East Fork Illinois River. The Treesort and Institute features Treehouse accommodations for kids of all ages.

If you come to learn, relax, romance
or just have fun there is plenty for all.

To help you understand this risk and remind you to use common sense, Out’n’About and their Insurance Company
require you to sign a release and assumption of risk agreement to stay here or do any of Our Activitrees.
