In 2016, August Camp will set up on the shore of Lake Leland in Quilcene, Washington. Our wonderful new site is located in the foothills of the Olympic Range west of Seattle, just outside Olympic National Park. Dates are July 16 through August 13.

The forest, coastal, and mountain ecosystems of the Olympic Peninsula combine to create a spectacular wilderness park. We will explore this diverse environment with multiple hike offerings each day at varying levels of difficulty. We will also feature special activities such as sea kayaking, biking, swimming, and various tours to unique destinations in the area.

Come explore the Olympic National Park and environs with us!

The Application and Camper information form, as well as detailed Camp information are available on this website . Plan your one or two week adventure now and be part of one of the AMC's oldest traditions.

Week 1: July 16 - July 23
Week 2: July 23 - July 30
Week 3: July 30 - Aug. 6
Week 4: Aug. 6 - Aug. 13
