Olympic Peninsula 2020
August Camp 2020 will be set up in Quilcene, WA
Our beautiful site is located in the foothills of the Olympic Range west of Seattle, just outside Olympic National Park. This site is near our 2016 location but not the same.
On the Olympic Peninsula, forest, coastal, and mountain ecosystems combine to create a spectacular wilderness park. We will explore this diverse environment with multiple hike offerings each day at varying levels of difficulty. We will also feature special activities such as sea kayaking, biking, swimming, and various tours to unique destinations in the area.
This full-service tent village accommodates 64 campers each week. Hikes are planned and led by AMC trained and approved volunteer leaders. Three delicious meals are prepared by our friendly camp staff.
After a day of the activity of your choice relax around the nightly campfire. This will be the time to listen to 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.
Fly into Seattle-Tacoma International airport, from there our fleet of camp vans provides 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 on Saturday to enjoy the hiking, the scenery, the people, and the fun that is August Camp!
Availability is limited so plan your adventure now and be part of one of the AMC's oldest traditions.
