Hikes and Activities List


A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUTINGS AT THIS YEAR’S CAMP

Although August Camp is primarily a hiking camp, we will also schedule some non-hiking excursions to scenic areas, and, if possible, some kayaking, biking and trail work activities. Visits to the San Juan Islands may also be offered. These extra activities may involve some extra charges, such as admission fees, or costs of an outfitter. In addition, it is perfectly ok to stay in camp for the day and relax with a book or your camera.

CAMP AND HIKE ELEVATIONS

Our camp is located at about 300’ but our hikes will be in the 4000’ to 7000’ range. You may wish to select easier hikes until you feel acclimatized.
