Campers will learn about all of secret clues hidden around them in plain sight. They'll hone their powers of observation and deduction while using GPS devices to search Seattle for geocaches.

Campers will harness the power of their imagination and renewable resources to design & build creative solutions to environmental challenges. They will be empowered to explore and experiment as they bring their ideas to life. No idea is too silly or impossible!
A stick is never just a stick when we’re outdoors and have our imagination. Campers will explore and make crafts using nature as their inspiration and materials.

Our young geologists will hunt for rocks,“gems,” and glacial erratics while exploring the wilderness. They’ll be able to tumble and polish their rocks, and even crush them to make their own ink.

Campers will be immersed in their own Storybook Adventure. They’ll have to figure out clues, riddles, maps and compass directions left to them by pirates, fairies, hippogriffs, and more. They'll hone their skills as they embark on a journey searching for lost treasure, and in the end will take home a storybook of their adventure with them as the main characters.
All creatures have similar basic needs: air, shelter, water, and food. Campers will discover what those needs are by learning to use the "Rule of 3" as a general guideline. They will learn how to weave, collect water, build debris shelters, and make a fire. It’s a lot of work, but well worth it as they celebrate with s’mores in the end.
