One of the most gorgeous camps we’ve ever seen, Four Winds Westward Ho is nestled among the San Juan Islands in the northwest corner of Washington State. This camp’s roots date back to 1927, which means there are plenty of enduring traditions. All campers wear a uniform and gather regularly in front of the main lodge’s fire to sing songs, play music, and swap stories. Not surprisingly, water sports are big here. Four Winds owns its own 62-foot yawl, the Carlyn, which takes campers on day and overnight sails. Land activities include: archery, basketball, pickleball, woodcarving, poetry, gardening. For girls and boys, ages 7 to 18, for 4 weeks; there’s also a “junior session,” which is like a one-week trial.
