In 2014 August Camp experienced the incredible beauty of Mount Rainier National Park. Marveled at spectacular scenery while walking among towering hemlocks, relive the drama of Mt. St. Helens, and hike on the shoulder of the 2nd highest peak in the lower 48. Camp was set up in the small former lumbering town of Packwood adjacent to the park.

After a day of the activity of choice, we relaxed around the nightly campfire. This was be the time to, hear reports from the day’s hikes, learn about the next day’s activities, and enjoy singing and conversation.

Our full service tent village hosted 64 campers each week offers home-cooked meals, daily hikes at all levels, nightly campfires and wonderful camaraderie. Our designated airport was Seattle-Tacoma International, and our fleet of vans provided transport between camp and SeaTac on each Saturday.

Week 1: July 19 - July 26
Week 2: July 26 - Aug 2
Week 3: Aug  2- Aug. 9
Week 4: Aug. 9 - Aug. 16
