SEPTEMBER 7-10, 2023
Get back to your roots at summer camp for adults
The Evergreen State lives up to its name from the moment you roll through the camp gates. Spanning 200 forested acres nestled between the Seattle and Portland, Camp Solomon Schechter’s sparkling lake, towering trees, and breathtaking views paint the perfect backdrop for a relaxing weekend at camp. Among the sprawling fields you’ll find a multi-level ropes course to test your grit and a zipline to soar through a canopy of trees. Practice your aim in the archery field, race through the inflatable aqua park on the lake, float through the bog on an innertube, or hike one of camp’s scenic trails. Trybal PNW is a choose-your-own-adventure of infinite possibility, and the perfect escape to connect with new friends while disconnecting from the real world. This experience is yours to make what you want of it.
Fun fact: The official sport of Washington state is pickleball. Get ready to play hard and stay out of the kitchen!

WHAT TO EXPECT
You’ll get to customize each day by choosing from over 50 classic and out-of-the-box camp activities. While we encourage you to try something new, you're in charge of your own schedule. Start your morning with a lakeside yoga on the dock with a DJ, or just roll into breakfast in time for the mimosa bar and La Colombe coffee bar. Between electives, check your camp mailbox, grab a snack at Bubbe’s Beer Garden, and embrace activities that make you forget to check your phone. Evening programs favorite include Trybal's Got Talent, Are You Smarter than a 90s Kid, Moth Storytelling, silent disco, and karaoke, just to name a few. No matter what you choose, there is surprise and delight layered into each part of the day. This weekend is yours to relax and recharge the way you want. Some of the many PNW highlights include:
slip 'n' slide kickball
kombucha & ginger beer brewing
meditation in motion
Jewish cooking workshops

WA wine tasting

What Trybal PNW campers say
"I have been trying to find ways to invigorate the Jewish community around Seattle and this brought out a group of insanely cool people that I haven't been able to reach. It makes Seattle feel more like home. It also filled a huge void for me about camp and really energized me and reminded me how much I love being Jewish. What Trybal offers is really incredible and life changing."
