Before Camp

Transportation/Directions

Parents/Guardians/Caregivers are responsible for their camper’s transportation to and from camp during the summer. For weekend sessions only, there is an opportunity for campers to meet one of our buses in Gig Harbor for a ride to camp; this service costs $25. We must have a minimum of 5 campers signed up to offer this opportunity. Those interested, email our registrar, Hilary.

  • Take US 101 E
  • L onto State Route 20; follow for 3.7 mi
  • R onto Anderson Lake Rd; follow for 2.8 mi

Drop Off/Pick Up and Late Pick Up Policy

Drop off and pick up times:
Summer:  Monday 4:00pm; Saturday 10:30am
(**One-To-Fun Session:  Tuesday 4:00pm; Saturday 10:30am)
Weekend times:  Friday 6:00pm; Sunday 3:00pm
(Community event weekends:  Friday 5:30pm; Sunday 12:00pm)
When thinking about drop off or pick up, we ask that you include ferry schedules, traffic/construction delays, and possible bridge closures into your planning.

We are unable to provide supervision prior to drop off times as staff are getting ready for the session doing last minute tasks. Additionally, when campers are not picked up on time, we are required to designate at least two staff to wait with the camper. (This pulls them from their duties, which impacts the rest of the staff who must shift to provide necessary coverage.) Therefore, CBNW reserves the right to charge $100 per 15-minute increment beyond the designated pick up time.

Packing List

The packing list is a guide based on what we find campers find useful and comforting. You can download the list here. If you have any questions about what to bring, please reach out to our registrar, Hilary, to ask.

During Camp

Contact Camp

For general inquiries, non-emergent questions and/or concerns, please call (360) 732-7222. Please understand that summer is very busy and we do not sit by the phone, so allow us time to respond.

For emergencies, please call the Director on Duty (360) 837-0565. Please note: This number is for emergencies only.

Photos

The best place to find photos from camp are on our social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. Because we are busy leading activities and creating summer fun, posts are generally made once per day. Only those individuals who sign the photo release form will have a photo shared. For privacy, please do not “tag” others in group photos.

Mail

You are welcome to send your camper a letter while at camp. Please understand that it takes about three days for a letter to get here from the Seattle/Tacoma area, so you may want to post the letter early. Any letters that arrive after your camper has left will be returned to sender.

Please use our mailing address: PO Box 1227, Port Hadlock, WA 98339

Camp Store

What better way to commemorate a fun week at camp than wearing new camp swag … visit the Camp Store!

After Camp

Lost and Found

At the end of summer, you will receive an email identifying your campers’ lost items and will be asked if you want them returned or donated. There will be two dates (TBD) where you can pick up the items in either Sequim or the Edmonds ferry. You may also make arrangements to come to camp to get the items. CBNW is unable to mail items. Anything not claimed by the end of the year will be donated to the local thrift store.

Get Involved

We have many ways for our community to stay involved year-round. Check out all the opportunities on our website at Get Involved in the top menu bar.

Giving

CBNW is incredibly grateful for the generosity of our community who help us do what we do. We cannot run programs, hire quality staff, or provide scholarships without help. Please consider donating.

Registration for Next Year

Registration for the following year always occurs on December 16th at 9am. Session themes and descriptions will be posted to the website approximately one week prior to allow campers to plan.
