Camp Nor’wester on Johns Island
Our unique 135-acre property is the old Nell Robinson Ranch at the west end of Johns Island, in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Surrounded by over 10,000 feet of saltwater shoreline, the area includes wetlands, open meadows and diverse forests. A long sandy beach flanks the south shore, while many intimate coves dot the north. The property is home to numerous old growth firs, gigantic Madrona and Garry Oak. It is a haven for bald eagles, otters, mink, seal, deer and a multitude of wildlife. Coves and beaches piled high with driftwood are alive with seabirds and shellfish. The snowcapped Olympic and Cascade peaks and other San Juan Islands are visible from many points on the property. The open meadows and undulating shoreline allow for many planned and spontaneous activities. Virtually the entire property is child-friendly and ideal for camp activities and exploration.
