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.
A time for a parent/caregiver and child to unplug, connect in nature, play, laugh, & relax together!
165 US dollars
We are offering our first overnight Parent (or Caregiver) / 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 Take It Home
Sunset on the Beach
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. To reserve a cabin or RV site, email email@example.com. These will be available first come-first served basis.
Saturday – Families will bring a packed lunch and snack
Pizzas delivered for dinner (Roasted honey apples and S’mores for dessert)
Breakfast – Fruit, Coffee, Juice, and Muffins
Lunch – Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Clementines and Cookies
The facilitators have 39 years of experience creating experiences and resources for families to bond and learn mindful practices to apply in daily living. They have created "Nature Calm" resources for families to underscore the connection between families and nature as a foundation for meaning and purpose.
