Park Overview:
A spectacular saltwater beach park located along the shores of picturesque Port Susan. From its 3,300 feet shoreline to its evergreen forests, Kayak Point Park offers a rich setting for pier fishing, windsurfing, picnicking, swimming, hiking, camping, and boat launching. A pier extends 300 feet into Puget Sound and is the site for crabbing and fishing. At high tide, the water depth is 50 feet off the pierís end. Baited crab pots are used to attract Dungeness and red rock crab. Fishing enthusiasts catch flounder, sole, true cod, rockfish, and walleye pollock year-round and migrating sea perch in spring and summer. Casting from the shoreline will occasionally bring in dolly varden or a sea-run cutthroat. Visitors can enjoy the many activities a day at the beach offers, then retreat to a comfortable and unique yurt for the evening, or camp in your own tent or RV (or rented RV). You could also opt to stay off-site and come into the park and join the FRUA campers during the day. For more information on the park, click here and get directions to the park here.




Camp Format:
The idea behind this camp is to provide an extended event for families to get-to-know other families with similar origins as their own. Kids and teens get time with each other. Parents get time with other parents, too.

This will be a ďBYOĒ do-it-yourself camp. Camping families will bring their own food and bedding. There is a loose schedule and all activities are optional. There will be plenty of time for swimming and floating in the sound, beach-combing, kite flying, hiking, fishing, playing frisbee & games, kayaking and kicking back in our camp chairs watching the fun and chatting. There are also teen-specific activities. We will ask for campers to volunteer to organize some events. If you have an idea for an activity that you would like to lead, let us know.

You can count on our traditional stone soup, Kazakh donuts, and blini. Plus, we'll have even more yummy ethnic foods and new activities.

To register for camp, follow these four steps.:
1. Reserve accomodations below.
2. Send us an email to let us know you are coming to camp.
3. Make sure your FRUA INC membership dues are up-to-date for 2019.
4. Pay a donation for camp supplies and activities. If you are a member, you may skip this step if you reserved a yurt. $35 was included in the yurt registration fee. If you are not a member, join FRUA in step 3 above or make a $75 donation for camp supplies and activities below. Camp supplies and activities exceed the $35 donation amount significantly. The total is heavily subsized by FRUA funds.
