Family Friendly Fun on Camano Island!Posted: May 16, 2011
Puget Sound offers many fun outdoor activities for the avid and closet adventurist alike and Camano Island is no different. But what about activities that are catered toward quality time with the kiddos?
Spending some time with us here on Camano Island is an excellent way to treat yourself and your family. No matter the time of year you visit, there’s always something happening here! Depending on the ages of your little — or not so anymore — ones, here are some fun things you may consider happening year ’round on Camano.
If you visit Camano Island in the last part of the winter, you’ll be able to witness the magnificence of the migratory Snow Goose (say THAT 3 Times fast!). The Port Susan Snow Goose & Birding Festival is held every year at the end of February on Camano Island and in neighboring areas, with field trips, an art festival, and scheduled birding tours daily to bring the beauty of this magnificent bird to you.
Ready for a little more pep in your family fun? Camano Island can provide that, too! Every June is the Stanwood Camano Island Soap Box Derby. Watch as these racers set up and fly by as they speed ahead to win a spot at the national championship, held every year in Akron, Ohio! Who knew, right?
If you want a traditional treat in the middle of the summer, you’re in luck! The Stanwood-Camano Community Fair is held each August. This event has something for everyone, from youth livestock displays to a horse show and Western games, with a midway for kids of all ages to enjoy. With a concert each night, your family will have a frollicking good time no matter what day you attend.
Winding up the festival season each year is the Harvest Jubilee, which is one weekend in September. Take the time to visit the many farms on Camano Island and be entertained by local musicians while you taste the bounty of our island.
Spending time with your family on Camano Island can be entertaining and educational all at the same time. Take some time during your family’s outing schedule to enjoy our community events, and let them become a part of your family’s treasured memories.
These are just a few of the family-focused events happening around Camano Island. Check back on my blog often for more fun hints on Camano Island fun!
