B&B Nature Immersion
Barnacles & Bees is Bremerton’s first nature-based, 100% outdoor early learning program. We aim to provide an affordable, inclusive day camp for children ages 2.5-6 living in Bremerton and the greater Kitsap region. Every day in our class is an adventure to discover the Pacific Northwest. We thrive in forests and on the beaches; it's the perfect place to play, grow, and learn!
Here, children ages 2.5-6 are encouraged to:
+ be confident
+ be courageous
+ be curious
+ be creative
+ and be mindful – of others and the planet

Covid-19 Best practices:
We are following Washington Department of Health guidelines for day camps & outdoor preschools.
At Barnacles & Bees, classes are 100% outdoors, regardless of weather.
Our curriculum is modeled with special attention to natural, daily and seasonal rhythms, child-led exploration and observation, and inclusive community building.
The heart and aim of our program is to provide a sensory rich environment where kids have more space to develop critical skills that can prepare them for focused learning in their later years. Outside in nature, a child can have more space; space to practice creative problem solving, build confidence and spatial awareness, learn to assess risk, and strengthen physical development.
