Summer Camp at the Hatchery – Registration Now Open

The Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery is now taking registration for summer camp at the hatchery. Camps are available for youth ages 3 through 11. .

We’re all geared up for Summer Camp. It may be cold and rainy outside now, but summer fun is right around the corner.  Summer camp with FISH has proved to be a very popular summer program with campers returning year after year. One parent said, “My kids loved camp! They came home each day with a story and very happy. We will be back next year!”

Celina Steiger, our Education Coordinator is the Camp Director, and along with summer staff and young camp helpers, has designed a program that helps children discover the wonders of our amazing salmon and the waters they live in. Days are filled with active games, songs, stories and exploration of salmon habitat.

Campers enrolled in Little Fry Camp discover the answers to “Where do salmon live?” and “Who lives near the salmon?”. For ages 3 to 5, camp is July 15 through 19 from 9:30 in the morning to 12:30.

For youth ages 6 to 8 there is Salmon Science Camp where they have fun learning about our amazing salmon, the waters they live in, and the animals and challenges they encounter. Our most popular camp, there are three sessions available: June 24-28, July 22-26 & August 5-9.

The Salmon Science Camp for youth ages 9 to 11 is July 29-August 2.

A special three day camp at Baxter Barn in Fall City is planned for July 1 – 3. Baxter Barn is a historical farm dedicated to sustainability and conservation. Campers explore this historic working farm with a focus on being salmon friendly. Campers ages 7 – 11 are welcome at Baxter Barn Salmon Camp.
