Join us for the first overnight campout of the school year. We'll be meeting at the Rainier Beach Community Center @ 9:00am on Saturday and returning @ 11:00am on Sunday.
Here's a little history on where we'll be camping.
Fort Casey, Fort Worden and Fort Flagler together were known as the “Triangle of Fire,” a trio of strategically placed fortifications defending the entrance to the Puget Sound at the turn of the 20th Century.
Constructed in the late 1800s, Fort Casey was equipped for defense and used as a training facility up to the mid-1940s. The fort houses a pair of rare 10-inch disappearing guns. While the guns were the height of technology in the early 1900s, improvements in warships and the advent of airplanes soon rendered them obsolete. Two additional mounted guns are also on display in their original emplacements.
