• Each year, 5th graders from Chautauqua attend Waskowitz Outdoor School for 4 days. This environmental education experience east of North Bend includes academic, social, and independent growth in the safety of a school environment. Teachers and students investigate the outdoors, hike, meet and mingle with other schools, and enjoy a learning experience in the foothills of the Cascades.
    Dates for 2019-20:
    Tuesday, May 26th - Friday, May 29th, 2020
    • Waskowitz Permission Form (Highline) - Required
    • Medication Form - Required if ANY (including Over the Counter medications) are to be sent with your child


    The full cost for each student to attend Waskowitz is $205.  We request that those families able to pay the full amount do so, though this is not required; no student will be denied participation of the Camp Waskowitz experience based on financial circumstances.
    The Vashon Island School District subsidizes the cost of Waskowitz and we ask parent's to pay at least $100.  You can pay this in our office with cash, check or credit or by credit online (additional fee applies).  When paying online, use the same username and password you use to log in to Skyward Family Access.  Contact our office with any questions.
    For anyone hoping to receive a full or partial scholarship, we require our Scholarship Request Form be printed, filled out and submitted to the CES Office no later than Thursday, April 30th, 2020.  We also have some hard copies available in the office and can provide one to you upon request.  Scholarships are prioritized for families qualifying for Free/Reduced Lunch first and for others as funds are available.
