Overnight learning adventures and accommodations in the heart of north cascades national park

Flexible, affordable, enriching and fun, Base Camp offers you the opportunity to explore and learn about “the American Alps” while enjoying the comforts of our award-winning campus in the heart of North Cascades National Park.

During the glorious summer and fall months at North Cascades Environmental Learning Center, we invite you to stay with us to experience the embrace of the mountains, forests and lakes. It's a unique opportunity to visit the Diablo Lake neighborhood for the first time, stop over as you travel across the Cascades or conclude your national park camping, hiking, biking or climbing adventure.

Base Camp

Each night of Base Camp includes:

  • Two inspiring outdoor learning adventures offering hands-on exploration of the natural and cultural history of North Cascades National Park
  • Accommodations in our comfortable lodges
  • Three delicious meals made with locally-sourced, organic ingredients
