Outdoor Summer Day Camps

Nurture Your Child’s Curiosity


Nature-Based Learning and Discovery

Registration is open! 


IslandWood’s outdoor Summer Day Camps on our Bainbridge Island campus 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.


The safety of your children is always of the utmost importance to us. We have carefully reviewed COVID-19 health and safety 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. Of course, as this is an ever-changing situation, we’ll keep you updated on any changes in protocols and procedures. 


If you have any questions or concernsplease don’t hesitate to reach out to Joan Hutchinson, Registrar, at joanh@islandwood.org or 206-855-4305. 

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

Our refund and cancellation policy is as follows:


  • Full refund (less $40 processing fee) for cancellations at least four weeks before the start of camp.
  • 50% refund for cancellations at least 2-4 weeks before the start of camp.
  • Cancellations within two weeks of the start of camp are not eligible for refund. Exceptions may be considered in cases of extenuating circumstances.

Camps on Bainbridge Island

Through hands-on exploration that builds important social and academic skills, we offer a range of camps from marine science to cooking to journalism…something to inspire every child.
