2024 camps will be release 1st week of November!


Puffin Protectors is designed to cultivate natural curiosity, adventure, group play and imagination for the young child.


Everything will take place in the forests or on the
shores surrounding the magnificent Salish Sea. The state endangered Tufted Puffin will be our feature creature for this age group. One the first day of camp they will adopt a plushy named Tuff Puff who will be theirs to “protect” as they learn,
play, and explore together. The last day of camp includes an option for 1 parent/guardian to join their child for a chartered boat ride to explore the wild beauty of James Island State 
Park for our final graduation ceremony.

During the week your child will also enjoy:

  • Forest to shore hiking adventures

  • Tidal pool exploration

  • Ecofriendly art projects 

  • Nature Calm with yoga & mindfulness

  • Service learning with beach cleanup

  • 12:3 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. CV19 Policies



Puffin Protectors is held on beautiful Fidalgo Island in Anacortes, WA. The specific location each day will vary based on programming.


Every program also includes a special boat ride (with Island Express​​ Charters) 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. Students will not be visiting these remote islands.
