Looking for something fun for the kids to do this summer?

Check out this year’s Watershed Adventure Summer Day Camp! This year we are partnering with Get Outside Olympia to offer five full days of exploration and discovery for kids ages 8-12.
We will explore local beaches and parks in the Olympia area, as well as go further afield to find the sources of our local rivers at Mount Rainier National Park and Olympic National Park. We will learn about our region’s natural history and geography, and practice outdoor safety skills.

Program dates: June 26th- June 30th, 2017
