A shore-based summer camp for rising K-2nd & rising 3rd-5th graders

Anacortes, WA - CV19 Policies



We are so passionate about introducing students to the incredible marine life that depends on the classroom right outside our doorstep, especially the state endangered tufted puffin population.

Puffin Protectors includes:

  • "Tuff Puff" plushy adoption

  • Boat ride to explore James Island with our partners, Island Express

  • Forest to shore hiking adventures

  • Marine bird discovery & identification 

  • Marine ecosystem connections, such as how orcas are related to Puffins

  • Tidal pool exploration

  • Nature & ecofriendly art projects

  • Nature Calm with yoga & mindfulness

  • Environmental service project

  • 12:2 student-to-teacher ratio

  • Camp t-shirt

Note: Lunch is not included, students will need to pack their own lunch, water, and snacks each day.




Puffin Protectors is held on beautiful Fidalgo Island. The specific location will vary based on age group and programming.


Every program also includes a special boat ride and hiking adventure on James Island.

James Island features emerald coves, forested trails, spectacular views and an isthmus with two white sand beaches!

We can't wait to explore with you. 

Please note:  Seeing Tufted Puffins is highly unlikely as the Washington state population is endangered. In our state, they are now only found on two remote islands in the Salish Sea and on the coast.
