2019 Schedule

MONDAY: Larrabee State Park (Clayton Beach via Lost Lake Parking Lot) 9:30-4:00PM

This is the perfect place to start our week long camp journey together! Clayton beach provides forests to explore, fossils to find, rocks to climb and giant hills of sand to play on. Plus there are tons of awesome plants and animals that call this area home. Where we go and what we do is determined by our curiosity.

Drop-off and pick-up: From I-5 take exit 250 and head west on Old Fairhaven Parkway to Chuckanut Drive. Turn left onto Chuckanut Drive for 5.5 miles. The parking lot for Clayton Beach is a short distance past the main Larrabee State Park entrance on the left hand side. Map.

Reminder: A Discover Pass is required for all parking at Larrabee State Park. If you do not have a Pass, please stay with your vehicle and plan to make drop-off and pick-up quick.

TUESDAY: Arroyo Park via North Chuckanut Trailhead 9:30-4:00PM

Our local treasure in the Chuckanuts endlessly yields adventure and exploration. With Chuckanut Creek rushing through its base and the steep flanks of Chuckanut Mountain on its edge, Arroyo Park offers challenging terrain and a pristine riparian zone for spawning salmon. We’ll get to find out what this patch of wild land is up to. There are a number of ways into Arroyo Park, but we have opted for drop-off and pick-up at North Chuckanut Mountain trailhead.

Drop-off and Pick-up: From I-5 take exit 250 and drive west on Old Fairhaven Parkway to Chuckanut Drive. Turn left on Chuckanut Drive for 1.2 miles. Just past the intersection with Old Samish Road there will be a parking lot on your left with a sign saying “North Chuckanut Mountain Trailhead.” Map.

WEDNESDAY: Hundred Acre Woods via Fairhaven Park 9:30-4:00PM

Fairhaven Park and the nearby Hundred Acre Wood have been a Wild Whatcom stomping ground for years now. The diverse landscape, thick sword ferns, and wise cedars make one forget their proximity to town. Expect a full day of hiking, playing games, honing our awareness to the natural world, and learning to work together as a group.

Drop-off and Pick-up: From I-5 take exit 250 and drive west on Old Fairhaven Parkway to Chuckanut Drive. Turn left on Chuckanut Drive for 1.2 miles. Turn left into the Fairhaven Park entrance. Turn right into the second parking lot at top of hill. Map.

THURSDAY: Larrabee State Park 9:30-4:00PM Friday (overnight)

After meeting at the Larrabee State Park day use area, we will gather up and get ready for our extended time together. We’ll load up our overnight gear into the mentor’s cars and then head up the trail towards Fragrance Lake or trek along the trail to Clayton Beach. After spending the day getting lost in exploration and play we'll head back to Larrabee State Park set up camp, cook some food, build a campfire, play some more games, and perhaps have a night hike down to the beach.

Drop-off and Pick-up: From I-5 take exit 250 and drive west on Old Fairhaven Parkway. Turn left onto Chuckanut Drive and head 5.5 miles south to Larrabee State Park. The main Larrabee State Park entrance and day use area will be on your left.

Reminder: A Discover Pass is required for all parking at Larrabee State Park. If you do not have a Pass, please stay with your vehicle and plan to make drop-off and pick-up quick.
