Teachers often describe our campus as “stepping into a book.” At every moment, students get to test, touch, and examine with their own senses and follow their curiosity. Even mealtimes are an occasion for learning.
Our 250-acre campus is located on Bainbridge Island, a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle. While here, students explore our campus’s natural features including a bog, pond, harbor, and miles of trails, as well as learn in and from a variety of built environments including our Garden Classroom, Living Machine, treehouses, Suspension Bridge, Canopy Tower, and our sustainable buildings.
In our four lodges, each child has a comfortable bed in a bunk room that sleeps four to five children and includes a private bathroom. Chaperones and teachers sleep in separate rooms on the same floor as the kids. The lodges also provide an opportunity to learn about sustainable building and architecture.
We recognize that parents of children with food allergies have special concerns about what their children will be eating at IslandWood and how the food will be prepared. Our kitchen staff follow FARE guidelines for managing food allergies and for preventing cross-contact. We look forward to working with you as a team to ensure the safety and nutrition of your child.
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.
