In 2016, August Camp made its inaugural visit to the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic National Park. With camp set on the shore of beautiful Lake Leland in Quilcene, Washington, we found ourselves perfectly positioned in the foothills of the Olympic Range just west of Seattle. Hiking through the diverse environment of forest, coastal and mountain ecosystems, we enjoyed views of Mount Olympus and in the distance, spotted familiar peaks from camps gone by (Mount Rainier, Mount Baker).

After a day of activity, we enjoyed outstanding meals and the general camaraderie of camp. Evenings were spent relaxing with friends -- both new and old, hearing reports from the day’s hikes, learning about the next day’s adventures, and enjoying singing and conversation.

Our full service tent village hosted 64 campers each week and offered home-cooked meals, daily hikes at all levels, nightly gatherings and general conviviality. Our designated airport was Seattle International, and our fleet of vans provided transport between camp and Seattle on each Saturday.
