Meet Our Team
The Salish Sea School is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and connectedness. We are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse team. We welcome the unique contributions that one can bring in terms of their education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
We are stronger together with the collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent which ultimately brings about a healthier planet.

We are offering our first overnight Parent/Child Adventure Camp out at the beautiful Quaker Cove Retreat Center on Similk Bay. This camp has been designed to offer unforgettable moments for the parent/caregiver and a child to experience one on one time in nature and learn practices to take home to apply in the busy lives that all families lead.
We have planned this overnight camp so that you and your child will simply show up and experience adventures in nature, family games, and time to relax at the private beach.
Our time together will include:
Family Forest Scavenger Hunt, Family Adventure Games, Similk Bay wading and water play, Beach Campfire and S'mores,"Nature Calm" practices, Family Art, Sunset on the Beach, and more!
The Salish Sea School believes that families are an incredibly important link and forming center for children and that nature can be a place for parents and kids to relax, bond and unplug. We believe that one on one time with your children when they are young is "putting money in the bank" for when you and your child will face the normal individuation of the early teen years and beyond.
You can bring a tent and camp in a meadow among the beautiful Cedars and Douglas Firs, bring your RV (3 sites available with electric and water), or rent a Cabin on a first come-first served basis (4 rustic cabins available, bring your own linens and towels).
$165 per parent/child, additional $50 per rustic cabin or $10 for RV site.
