Spring Projects Bring Summer Fun

Huge facility projects and programming logistics are in full swing as the camp prepares for the beginning of our program season. Ben and Jay are busily working on the remodel of the girls' bathroom, Joseph and Connie are readying the camp garden, tipis and trails, Margaret is liaising with campers and parents, excited to soon be arriving, and I am getting reacquainted with the programming for this summer (le Jacques Martin, fondue sur la plage, la nuit des moines... laissez les bon temps rouler!). We look forward to hosting the Orcas Bird Festival’s participating scientists on Thursday and participants of our Spring Work Party this weekend. A grand merci to our Canoe Island family and friends for continuing to support this magical place!

A bientôt!

  1. We believe that nothing is better for a child, other than unconditional love, than playing outside. Here on Canoe Island our days are filled with exploration, archery, swimming, kayaking, and just being in nature. For two or three weeks campers do not look at a screen, and most of them thank us for making them put their mini-computers away for awhile. Take a moment to watch this short video that looks at three generations of what we do for fun! Parents, think about making your children's smart phones, tablets and computers tools rather than lifestyles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is5W6GxAI3c&feature=youtu.be
