    8th Grade Deception Pass Camp June 6-8, 2016

    Mr. Bloedel has planned another exciting camping trip for our class!  This year we will be going to the nationally recognized Deception Pass State Park.

    We will be tenting and cooking all of our meals within the sound of waves crashing on North Beach.

    We will be spending 3 days studying the marine environment. This area is a rich ecological area with calm bays, raging passages, sandy beaches, sand dunes, and even a trapped lake. Tuesday will have negative tides that will allow us to closely study intertidal animal life (Crabs and sea anemones abound and rare nudibranchs and orange rubber worms might be found).

    The cost for this trip will be $165 for transportation, camping, food for 6 meals, snacks, and materials for marine biology education.

    Like last year's trip, we will again need parental help preparing for this camp as well as help as chaperones.Since Deception Pass is so close to Seattle, chaperones could come for the whole time or just for a day or two. If you know that you can help, please contact me at

    A camp meeting will be held on Monday May 9th, at 7:00 in the science room. I'll try to answer any questions and we can square away the chaperones and shoppers for the trip.

    Please remove the top of this page and return these forms to Mr. Bloedel with the tuition monies by May 27!
