Mt. Rainier (Packwood, WA)
In 2019 August Camp experiences the incredible beauty of Mount Rainier National Park. Marvel at the spectacular scenery while walking among towering hemlocks, relive the drama of Mt. St. Helens, and hike on the shoulder of the second highest peak in the lower 48 (Mount Rainier). The camp will be set up in the small former lumbering town of Packwood adjacent to the park.
After a day of the activity of your choice relax around the nightly campfire. This will be the time to listen to ranger talks, hear reports from the day’s hikes, learn about the next day’s activities, and enjoy singing and conversation.
Youths 10 years and up may attend with a parent or guardian. There is no youth-specific price or programming. Any minor children younger than 18 years old must be accompanied on all hikes and activities by their parent or guardian and may not be left unattended at Camp.
This full-service tent village for 64 campers each week offers home-cooked meals, daily hikes at all levels, nightly campfires and wonderful camaraderie.
Fly into Seattle-Tacoma International airport, from where the fleet of camp vans provides free transportation to Camp each Saturday. The vans also provide transport to and from daily activities.
All you have to do is show up at the airport Saturday to enjoy the hiking, the scenery, the people, and the fun that is August Camp!
