Advanced Sampler Day Camp instruction runs 9:30-3:30 Mon-Tue-Wed with complimentary extended care drop-off no earlier than 8:00 and pick-up no later than 5:00 except no aftercare on Fridays.

Remember that camp is located at our reserved Hans Jensen Group Camp with hidden entrance across the street from the boat launch, not the main state park entrance. The facility is a privately-rented, eighty-acre property managed by the state park but not open to the public, located ACROSS FROM, NOT AT the East Lake Sammamish Boat Launch. Look for a gravel driveway on the opposite (east) side of East Lake Sammamish Parkway.
This week’s family classes cost $25 per person per class and require at least one enrolled parent accompanying any children. Click here to be redirected over to our meetup.com site to register for select family classes.

To reserve your spot for weeks still available, make a $100 deposit per camper/week and your balance will be due upon arrival.

Scholarships are available if you apply for financial aid before spaces fill, usually by late spring.
