Nature-Based Learning and Discovery

Our outdoor Summer Day Camps on our Bainbridge Island campus and at Brightwater Education Center in Woodinville boost children’s imaginations in rich natural settings. Our instructors are experienced environmental educators with a passion for creating experiences that unlock curiosity and understanding about our environment and our world.


An update about summer 2020 camps:


We are looking forward to a slightly different, but still wonderful, season of camp! 


The safety of your children is always of the utmost importance to us, and this summer obviously poses new issues around safety given the coronavirus. We have carefully reviewed all guidance from the CDC, Washington State Department of Health, Kitsap Public Health District and the American Camp Association in developing our safety policies and procedures for running camps this summer. As this is an ever-changing situation, we will keep you updated on any changes in protocols and procedures. 


If you have any questions or concernsplease don’t hesitate to reach out to Mary Meier, Community Education Manager at marym@islandwood.org or 206.855.4361. 

IslandWood offers need-based scholarships for our summer camps. Contact Joan Hutchinson at joanh@islandwood.org for more information.
