San Juan

On Wednesday we had a motley crew of ten volunteers at Camp Don Bosco. They helped scrape barnacles off of the hull of the San Juan and pine tar it for the upcoming summer season. Thank you for all of your help!

Brian Bradshaw High Ropes Course Dedication

The dedication on Saturday was a huge success! Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped facilitate the course, provide music, direct traffic and much more. We had over 60 people attend and even made King 5 news that night!

A Week for Wildlife!

Camp Hamilton has been buzzing with wildlife sightings this week. Students from Sacred Heart, St. Joseph in Vancouver, and St. Benedict have encountered White-tailed deer, a raccoon, and a young Barred owl while trekking around camp. The Barred owl and its mother have been spotted in the trees just outside the doors of Discovery Lodge! The baby owl is spending its days climbing the trees, branch by branch, to strengthen the muscles in its legs and wings, muscles which it will eventually use to take flight!

During evening reflection, a beaver swam away from the bog directly adjacent to the beach. Each student had a chance to see the majestic creature that formed Lake Hannan swimming just a few yards off shore. It was quite an awe inspiring moment.

Brian Bradshaw Memorial Ropes Course

Just a reminder that the dedication for the Brian Bradshaw Memorial Ropes Course is coming up. We would love to have you at Camp Hamilton on May 22. The day will begin with the dedication and blessing at 10:00 am, followed by a reception in Discovery Lodge. The course will be staffed and open for those who want to try it out. Please RSVP to Debbie at 206-382-4562.
