Located on the Northwest coast of Washington state, Olympic National Park encompasses nearly one million acres, protects a vast wilderness, thousands of years of human history and several distinct ecosystems, including glacier-capped mountains, old-growth temperate rain forests and over 70 miles of wild coastline.
Our campus is located on the edge of Lake Crescent, a beautiful body of water that is home to a rich history. Students stay in historic cabins, immersed in the hundred-year culture of what was once the Rosemary Inn (which housed prominent figures in its day such as President Franklin D. Roosevelt!).
Students engage in strenuous hikes deep in the forest to Mt. Storm King and go canoeing on the lake, learning more about endemic species as well as the lake’s dark history.
