DECEMBER 7 - 18, 2020

Winter is right around the corner and we need to get excited! For what, you might ask? For snow and hot cocoa, for warm fires and roasted marshmallows, for handmade presents and learning about winter traditions throughout the world! All of this and more at SNOW CAMP 2020!

Snow Camp is an opportunity for children to explore the best of the Kittitas Valley's festive season. Every day will be 4 fun-filled hours of games, crafts, science, and free play for all, complete with campfires and warm snacks. Our KEEN families can reserve spots in advance at the discounted rate or choose as you go with flexible drop-in opportunities. You can select as few or as many days as you want! Choose based on your child’s hybrid school schedule, their interest, “day of” needs, or any days you (parents) need to get some winter errands done.

Location and Facilities

KEEN’s Earth Explorers programs are located at Helen McCabe State Park just five miles south of Ellensburg on Canyon Road. We are 100% outdoors and have limited primitive resources and facilities: including walled tents, propane fire pits, and porta potties.

How it Works

Snow Camp 2020 is ten days of winter fun from December 7 - 18 (Mon-Fri). Every day's session will run from 11am - 3pm, with a lunch break (not provided). There is no set class schedule or grade level restrictions; your child can come once OR all ten days and anything in between. A punch card option allows you to prepay without committing to specific days (must notify camp director prior to the start of the day's session).

Early Registration: before November 25, $30/day.
Day Of/Drop-In Rates (after Nov 25): $40/day
