What are your memories of Canoe Island? Sunrise over Mt. Baker, sunsets over the Olympic Mountains? Songs on Inspiration Point? Fondue on the beach and dances in the Chateau? Maybe even a bus trip to Victoria? Who did you meet on Canoe Island who is still your friend?
Come to Canoe Island this summer to share your memories, meet old and new friends, kayak, sail, swim, hike, do archery and fencing or just relax on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. We’re celebrating 45 years of Canoe Island French Camp, Dr. Warren Austin’s 1969 vision of a sanctuary where children could learn French and about French culture while having fantastically fun days. Come for the afternoon/evening Friday including a poolside barbecue or spend the night in a tipi and continue the fun through Saturday. We’ll even celebrate the summer solstice at a beach campfire.
Overnight Celebration: 2 pm Friday - 4 pm Saturday - coincides with Les Portes Ouvertes (Open House) on Saturday
