Annual camping trip – Camano Island

Hi Everyone,

We’ve dialed in the date for the annual Sibling House Network camping kickoff to Camano Island State Park – June 12 (after school)-14. We traditionally go the first weekend after school is finished for the year but Father’s Day falls on that weekend’s Sunday and we felt that connecting with father’s would keep some from joining us. For those that have not participated in this annual trip. Camano Island State Park is of course, on Camano Island, about 40 miles north of Seattle. As a state park, foster homes are allowed to stay for free. Bring a copy of your license and lay it on your dash board. The staff there is really great to work with.

Typically, one of us heads up earlier in the day and reserves a bunch of sites close to each other. Then they call us and let us know the site numbers. Since we will know by your affirmative RSVP how many are coming, getting that many sites is not usually a problem. Lynne and I and family usually arrive about 7 PM and you can always call my cell, 425-681-9288 and we’ll let you know what sites to head towards. Sibling House will bring hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, some fluids, goodies, etc to add to whatever you bring. I will bring a BBQ to cook the hamburgers/hot dogs/veggie burgers for Saturday night dinner. All other meals you should plan for your family and if we overlap or pot luck a bit, all the better. Bring your tents, or trailers, or motor home. These sites do not have hookups. Restroom/shower nearby. Picnic tables and fire pits with each site. Fresh water available within the park. 

During the day on Saturday, we will again head down to the beach, hopefully with a lot of sun. Bring towels, chairs, drinks, sun-block, food. It’s easy to walk to the beach but we also take some vehicles.

Let us know if you can join us or if you have any questions. 

Michael & Lynne
