Students in grades six to nine have the chance to learn firsthand about the life cycle of salmon and have some fun along the way during Adventure Salmon Camp.
This year’s camp is Aug. 14-18. The camp, in its 11th year, is sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Salmon Center and the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group.
The overnight camp takes students on a journey around Hood Canal. Campers get to explore the forests, streams and marine beaches of Hood Canal. They will spend time swimming, kayaking, journaling, tracking animals, playing group games, camping and discovering the chill of the Blue Hole.
The camps provide opportunities to explore the area’s environment and provide a perspective of the salmon world above and below the water.
Camps are limited in size in order to provide a safe, educational experience based on sharing and discovery. The activities offered are designed to give campers confidence to explore, ask questions and offer their own insight.
The price is $425 and includes food and snacks, T-shirt, water bottle, journal, transportation at camp, camp dishes, tents, and other amenities. For information, contact 360-275-3575 or hcseg.org.
