Our 250-acre campus on Bainbridge Island, Washington hosts our School Overnight Program, graduate program, meetings and retreats, weddings, special occasions, summer camps, and public events for adults and families. Our campus features six different natural ecosystems, miles of trails, a garden classroom, and a sustainably-built infrastructure that facilitates learning, discovery, and community building.

Our campus-based programs, from our School Overnight Program to summer camps, operate year-round and serve thousands of school-aged children every year. To ensure the safety and well-being of the young people in our care, our campus – including the trail system – is private and all guests and visitors must check-in at the Welcome Center.
On many weekends throughout the year, when children and other event guests are not on site, we offer free and low-cost programs on our campus. Check out our Events Calendar for upcoming opportunities.
Thank you for helping us ensure the safety of children who participate in our programs!
