This Family camp (kids must participate with a caregiver) with our home base on Shaw Island takes our exploration to a new environment mindful of our connections from our home in Eastern Washington via water ways and the Columbia river all the way to the Pacific Ocean. This summer we take a closer look at the wild life that live not only in the waters but also on land and in the air in one of the most diverse ecosystems on our planet—the Salish Sea and the islands within in it.
San Juan Island Family Camp is scheduled for August 19th through 22nd. Children must attend with at least one adult family member or care giver. We have a group site reserved on Shaw island. The cost per family is $300 and includes camping, transportation during excursions on islands, special presentations by local experts and a visit to the Whale Museum. Individual families are responsible for their food and the reservation and cost of the ferry https://secureapps.wsdot.wa.gov/Ferries/Reservations/Vehicle/default.aspx. Meals are often potluck style.
