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.

As well as the 18 treehouses, 7 swinging bridges, 5 swings plus the Giant Tarzan, horses and chickens and a freshwater pool, there is an unbeatable collection of zipline courses with over a mile of Treehouse Ziplines.

Details of the treehouses are - The Majestree for 4-6, the highest residence with full bathroom, kitchenette and porch with spiral staircase. 47 feet up. The Serendipitree is a 2 storey treehouse for 2 (+2 children if need be). It has a fridge and the bathroom is 100ft away in the main house. The Forestree has walls, is 35 feet up, sleeps 4+, is accessible via the Mountain View Treeway and has toilet, fridge and sink inside. The Pleasantree sleeps 4+ so good for family and has a mini fridge, hot water, toilet and shower. The Treeloon sleeps 4 and is connected by a swinging bridge to the Cavaltree (styled like a fort in the trees). This treehouse is styled like an old west style saloon with swing doors. Amenities 120 feet away.

The Treehouse Institute offers 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. It is like a summer camp for the whole family. The experienced certified staff give zip line extravaganzas, guided horse back riding and treehouse construction. The craft courses are taught by local artists on site. There is a performance stage also, often used by the kids to play on.
