At Sound View, we know that you have an agenda when you bring young people to a retreat.  We believe that it is our responsibility to augment your agenda with activities best done at camp and best led by our staff.  We understand very well our crazy Pacific Northwest weather and what it does to scheduled activities.  So, we keep an open mind and will work hard to make activities happen based on what we can safely do, what the young people are interested in doing, and what will yield the most value and FUN.

We have excellent choices to offer like canoeing, group initiatives, high ropes, archery, paintball, crafts, hikes, and all sorts of crazy games. We can change course in an instant because we have learned  it is good not to get locked into one thing to end up disappointed when the weather won't cooperate.
