Summer Camps and School Year Programs

For over 30 years, Wilderness Awareness School students have been discovering the wonders of nature, exploring the outdoors, and building friendships. Campers work together gaining nature awareness and experiential knowledge of plants, animals, animal tracks, birds, and survival skills. Storytelling and engaging activities make learning fun and nurture students’ connection to the earth.

Wilderness Awareness School offers a variety of day camps, overnight camps, and expeditions during the summer, and once-a-month (Fridays and Saturdays) and once-a-week (Thursdays and Fridays) programs during the school year. Our programs are run at 5 Seattle and Eastside locations.
