“I live on Bainbridge and I am a huge fan of Christmas in the Country, primarily the participation by Kathy Countryman. Christmas in the Country is one of those great community traditions that seem rarer with every passing year. It was one of the first things that I enjoyed with my kids when we first moved to the island after ten years in downtown Seattle. They still both remember their first pony ride at Countryman’s Stables – one of my daughters now rides there regularly and I think it was because of one special Christmas afternoon. What I remember best is how nice it felt to drive around this lovely island and see some charming art, listen to various artists, see how many people just donated their time and opened their houses, and feel how special it is to live in a true community as opposed to a specific geographic location.”

The Camp Yeomalt Cabin and Classroom
Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District The Camp Yeomalt Cabin and Classroom 900 Park Ave NE Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
This beautiful and historic log cabin was originally constructed as a Boy Scout camp in 1935 by unemployed island residents through Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. Built of mostly local materials, the cabin served as a scout camp for generations of Bainbridge Islanders. In 1942 the camp was used as the US Army 202nd Coast Artillery’s Bainbridge Island headquarters. At that time a bathhouse was constructed where the Camp Yeomalt Classroom stands today. Many Park District art classes, youth arts and science workshops and summer camps are held here.
