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.
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
