July 27-31, 2020 Day Camps at Lake Sammamish

Wildlife, Herbal & Advanced Survival: WAIT LISTED to keep under 50 participants in Phase III

When registering for camp, please read our Summer Camps in the Pandemic Era page and view our upcoming blog post entitled Communicable Disease Prevention – Policies & Procedures. Or check out our new Virtual All-Day Camps!

Choose from our day camps located at the Hans Jensen Group Camp, our privately-rented wilderness park across from the East Lake Sammamish boat launch in Issaquah. Day Camps run Mon-Fri 9:30-3:30 with complimentary extended care 8:00-5:00 except no aftercare on Friday afternoon.

Camp is designed for ages 7-13 this summer with campers grouped with others closest to their age within our special 4-1 student-teacher ratio in 2020 (normally 6-1 average, 8-1 maximum) so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences this year.

Camp includes optional wading/swimming and games/archery during lunchtime, depending on park rules, camper safety tests, weather and other conditions.

Choose Your Camp Theme for July 27-31, 2020: WAIT LISTED to keep under 50 participants in Phase III

Wild Cooking & Herbology: In its 22nd year, this theme is excellent for focused learners ages 7-13, as it is like a mini college course on herbalism (although very hands-on) and therefore not recommended for adhd students.

Wildlife Search & Rescue: In its 24th year, this theme is excellent for exploratory learners ages 7-13, but not recommended for asperger spectrum students, as the itinerary diverges daily based on wildlife “finds” and other learning opportunities.

Advanced Wilderness Survival: In its 3rd year, this theme is open to ages 8-13 who have graduated from at least two previous Wolf Camp weeks, one of which must have been Wilderness Survival Craft, or a combination of the Wilderness Skills Sampler and one of our other advanced camps.

Camp Leaders

Camp Directors Kim & Chris Chisholm are on site all week directing professionally-trained staff instructors at our special 4-1 student-teacher ratio in 2020 (normally 6-1 average, 8-1 maximum) so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences this year.

Pickup/Drop-off Times & Directions: (scroll down for extended care options)

Instruction runs Mon-Fri 9:30-3:30 with complimentary extended care drop-off no earlier than 8:00 and pick-up no later than 5:00 except no aftercare on Friday afternoon.

Located at the Lake Sammamish Hans Jensen Group Camp, 4460 East Lake Sammamish Pkwy SE, Issaquah WA 98029, with normal arrival between 9:15-9:30 and normal pick up between 3:30-3:45. Remember that camp is normally 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.

There is no aftercare on Fridays. Instead, parents are invited to join us for special workshops and closing ceremonies from 2:00-3:30 on Fridays.  The schedule includes classic songs and stories from 2:00-2:15, special workshops for parents from 2:15-3:00, and camp graduation awards from 3:00-3:30. Please join us for closing ceremonies to help campers integrate the skills they learned back into their life!

Tuition

Summer Day Camp weeks at Lake Sammamish are $395 including complimentary extended care. Cumulative discounts include $5 per additional week you attend this summer, $5 off per additional family member attending this summer, and $5 off for successfully referring other families who register campers this summer.

To reserve your spot for weeks still available, make a $100 deposit per camper/week and your balance will be due upon arrival. The only additional expenses you may incur for camp are that you will need to pack a lunch and snacks every day, add extended care if desired, and of course all campers need health insurance.

Refund Policy: Deposits ($100 for day programs, $200 for overnight programs) are not refundable unless we don’t accept your application. If you cancel for any reason, you may receive a full credit good through the following calendar year on appropriate and available programs listed on our schedule, although an additional deposit is needed to secure your spot in the future program. If a program you sign up for is canceled and not rescheduled at a time you can attend, you may receive a full refund except in cases of natural (weather, geologic, wildfire, etc) disasters, epidemics, grid failures, government shutdowns, conflicts or curfews, or other unforeseen emergencies making it unsafe for staff and/or attendees to reach or use program locations, in which case all payments made will be held by us without expiration date for your future use in appropriate/available programs of your choice. Reasons include the expenditure of funds (property rentals, advertising, materials, admin staff time, etc.) long before programs take place, i.e. deposits make it feasible for Wolf Camp to schedule programs in the first place, but our mutually understood agreement is that Wolf Camp will run the program at the safest available time in the future. Finally, no refund, nor credit, is given if a participant is asked to leave a program for inappropriateness as determined by our kids, youth and adult agreements for participation.
