School’s Out FLOW Camp, Advanced Flow & Family Camp
Choose from our day camps located at the Hans Jensen Group Camp, our privately-rented, 80 acre 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 6-11 (flexible) with campers grouped with others closest to their age within our hallmark 6-1 average, 8-1 maximum student-teacher ratio that’s so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences.
Camp includes optional wading/swimming and games/archery during lunchtime, depending on park rules, camper safety tests, weather and other conditions.
Choose Your Camp for the week of June 29 – July 3, 2020:
School’s Out FLOW Camp is open to ages 6-11 with no prerequisite, and gives kids an opportunity to have a safe environment to really be outside, like in the olden days. We will have a variety of stations to choose from like the meditation tree, natural music composition, silent nature walks, yoga/dance, theater, nature crafts, and a selection of our special survival, wildlife and herbal skills. FLOW Camp is designed to give children a break from the routine of school, and to let loose some of their built-up energy.
Advanced FLOW Camp provides campers ages 8-12 returning from previous years with us an even greater opportunity for freedom than for new campers attending FLOW camp. Each day, participants will dive deeper into the free-flowing activity stations instructors have set up, with choice of our survival, wildlife and herbal skills, plus improvisational music composition, theater, and other creative outlets to let go of the routine built up in school.
Wilderness Family Camp is also available this week for parents who would like to attend with children. The Wilderness Family Camp offers a wide range of skills for families to learn together, including Navigation, Wildlife Tracking, Survival, Ethnobotany and more.
Camp Directors Kim & Chris Chisholm are on site all week directing professionally-trained staff instructors at our hallmark 6-1 average student-teacher ratio (8-1 average for family camps) that’s critical for safe, profound and fun outdoor experiences.

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!

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, pandemics, 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.
