2024 camps will be release 1st week of November!
The call of the deep invites your child to meet the Kraken who lives in the Salish Sea…the Giant Pacific Octopus! We are so thrilled to offer our first Kraken Kamp to explore this amazing creature and other invertebrates of the Salish Sea.
Each student will become a Kraken Karetaker as they have an opportunity to adopt a stuffy Giant Pacific Octopus on the first day of camp.
The giant Pacific octopus is a highly intelligent animal that can learn to open jars, solve puzzles and interact with Karetakers.
Kraken Kamp will be full of adventures as we explore the seldom seen world of the deep sea with segments from 'My Octopus Teacher', special charter boat going to the deep water of the Salish Sea and using our underwater drone or local diver to explore the creatures we might see there.
We will also explore and learn about the surrounding eco-system and become junior citizen scientists who are empowered to protect and share the story of the Giant Pacific Octopus.
Note: Lunch is not included, students will need to pack their own lunch, water, and snacks each day.
Kraken Kamp is held in Anacortes, WA on beautiful Fidalgo Island.
The specific day to day location will vary based on age group and programming.
Every program also includes a special boat ride and hiking adventure on James Island or Cypress Island.
We can't wait to explore with you!
Please note: Seeing a live octopus is highly unlikely during this camp.
