Because Life Shines And Sings To Me…

Four Winds * Westward Ho exists in a truly stunning corner of Orcas Island, which is itself a stunning corner of the world. From the rocky shores of Breakfast Beach, to the moss covered stones high up on Hill of the Moon, to the afternoon light spilling across our rolling horse pastures. We wake up every day, thankful for the beauty that surrounds us.

While we are thankful for the natural beauty, we of course are thankful for our historic buildings and program facilities. The built features of our property hold an aesthetic that is both timeless and modern; with detail and craftsmanship poured into every nook and cranny. We owe great thanks to Harlan Pedersen, AIA, who has been Camp’s architectural consultant on many projects including the Hilltop renovation, Craft Courts rebuild, and Health House rebuild, among others.

It’s no surprise that generations of campers have fond memories of the places in Camp, and we are proud to say that campers today are just as enchanted as they ever were with the loveliness of our camp property. Many spots in camp are perfect for spending time as a camp family, with a cabin or tent, or with a class group. Hill of the Moon, Moonraker, Big Rock, The Garden, The Amphitheatre, Breakfast Beach, and many others, are favorite spots to sleep out, get together for Sunday Assembly, and generally bask in the beautiful surroundings.
