Discover how our multi-day, residential School Overnight Program on Bainbridge Island extends learning beyond the classroom, engaging students in critical thinking, scientific investigations, and actions that build awareness of and concern for the wellbeing of people and our planet.
Three out of four students continue to demonstrate SOP program outcomes–teamwork, engagement with science, pro-environmental behaviors, embracing safe adventure, and engagement with their community–three months after their stay at IslandWood.
Three months after participating in the School overnight Program, teachers report a 70%+ increase in teaching pro-environmental behaviors; teaching outdoors; facilitating investigations; and incorporating stewardship projects.
IslandWood acknowledges that we live and work on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people, who have been stewards of this region's land and waters since time immemorial, and who continue to protect these lands and waters for future generations, as promised by the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, the Treaty of Point No Point of 1855, and the Treaty of Medicine Creek of 1854.
While the majority of our work takes place on Suquamish (suq̀ʷabš) and Duwamish (dxʷdɐwʔabʃ) land, we also conduct programs on the land of the Snohomish (sduhúbʃ), Puyallup (spuyaləpabš), Muckleshoot (buklshuhls), Skokomish (sqoqc’bes), and S’Klallam (nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm) peoples.
