NOTE: Beginning April 10, we are booking for Hawaiian Chieftain only for the 2013 camps.
The Historical Seaport is now taking reservations for our summer 2013 Expedition Voyages Family/Youth Camp programs. You’ll sail the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State, following in the wake of maritime explorers George Vancouver, Robert Gray, and Charles Wilkes.
“Stuart, Patos, Sucia, Matia, Lopez, Shaw” you’ll think to yourself as you and your family walk down the dock towards your ship. Island exploration for a week is as easy as it sounds. Once on board you’ll be introduced to the professional crew and “squared away” with a bunk below decks.
Together with other adventurous families, you will help sail the boat to islands tucked into the San Juans. At night you’ll row ashore in our long boats for camp fires, games, and your evening meal. Watching the sun slowly rise over the water, whether you’re sleeping on board or onshore, will gear you up for a day of island hikes, tidepooling and sailing. If it doesn’t, don’t worry – we have coffee too.
Watch with pride as your children tie sheet bends, set sail, row as a team and steer the ship towards your next island destination.
As you relax next to the fire at night, surrounded by your family and crew, getting ready to share your favorite memory from that day – which one will you choose?
Summer 2013 Dates and Pricing: July 20 to 24, 2013. Program cost is $650 per person. No children under five. Vessels depart from and return to Bellingham, Wash.
