Our Staff: 

Outrider Camps instructors are ultimately hired on the condition of being responsible people.  They combine a critical review of social & environmental systems with a ye old campfire attitude & knowledge. Arriving as adventurers from their backstories in world travel, the great outdoors, and Universities near you, they lead our authentic outdoor adventures. 








KYLE is the Founder, Administrator, Bus-Driver & Lead Field Coordinator. Here is a bit of my backstory. 


Mr. Kyle Purdy is the Director and Founder of Outrider Camps. I can be contacted by email or phone for any Outrider Camps program information. 

Founder's Bio: I remember my earliest days outside playing in the fields and woodlands of the Willamette Valley. Since a young age, I felt a strong desire to be Outdoors and interacting with the Plants, Wind, Bugs and Streams. 

My maturation into manhood led me to pursue studies in International Political Economy at the University of Puget Sound.  I held leadership positions in student government and Fraternal life. I experienced an intuitive desire to re-establish my roots in Oregon. I dropped out of the University after completing my courses in my Sophomore year and relocated to Portland.

In 2011, I followed a vision and joined the Trackers Earth immersion program. Spirit instructed me to do this.

In 2014 I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Oregon in Globalization & Environmental Policy. 

In 2015, I started Outrider Camps to serve the community in the Eugene area with seasonal summer programming for youth ages +6.  

I am continuing my pursuits in Leadership, International Travel and Foreign Language Acquisition. In 2018, I travelled to Shanghai.

This Bio is effectively incomplete.
