August Camp 2014 in Mount Rainier National Park, WA
We hiked in the shadows of majestic Mount Rainier
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 days hikes, learn about the next days 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.
