Have you ever wanted to sing, dance and write instructed by caring and renowned teachers? Or how about greeting the day with morning yoga and meditation? At Fortopia you’ll learn about marine ecosystems while side by side with new friends gathered to reassemble a whale skeleton. Or you may choose to grow your skills in traditional, hand tool woodworking led by a master craftsman. All of these experiences and more await!
Adventurous souls need look no further than Fort Worden. Artists, outdoor enthusiasts, and historians alike are invited to immerse themselves in the distinctive and creative experiences found only here! From its magnificent coastal setting, to the architectural echoes of its military heritage, to its vibrant lifelong learning community, Fort Worden inspires visitors with an indelible sense of place and wonder.
Arrive to find yourself transported back in time as historic charm meets hometown hospitality in our cozy overnight accommodations. Share accommodations with friends near Army bunkers from a bygone era, or relax in your private cottage as deer graze just beyond your private, covered porch. Take in views of Mount Baker and the North Cascades from your perch atop the bluff overlooking the Salish Sea as eagles fly overhead and waves from passing ships lap softly on beaches below.
