The natural world holds many wonders and surprises, if only one knows how to find them. We will learn the quiet, mysterious ways of the forest to become invisible, follow the hidden trails of our animal friends, create forest feasts, and construct ephemeral shelters. One day each camp week, we’ll wander the shores of Vashon’s beautiful shoreline and uncover marine mysteries!

  • build debris shelters
