About Bush

Methow Campus

Welcome to the Bush Methow Campus

The Bush School campus extends beyond the urban landscape of Seattle across the Cascade mountains to The Bush School Methow Campus. In the fall of 2016, the school acquired a twenty-acre campus and educational facility in Mazama, WA. This campus, located in the region known as the Methow Valley, provides students with immersive experiences that highlight the interdependence between community, environment, and self.

Methow Facilities

List of 5 items.

  • Classroom Building

    The classroom is next to the cabin. This building has one entrance with a large barn door that can be opened during the summer months. One wall has greenhouse windows, which bring light into the space. There is a built-in wall screen for movies and presentations.
  • Methow River

    A short walk takes students to the bank of the Methow River. In the summer and fall, the river goes underground, and students can walk across the riverbed. In winter, a bridge is laid across the river to connect the ski trails. And in spring, the river flows above ground.
  • Outdoor Spaces

    The twenty-acre campus features a full garden, large lawn, fire pit, and trails.
  • The Cabin

    The cabin sleeps eleven in three rooms. This sleeping space has a small kitchen, a fun loft, and is away from the bustle of the main lodge and located in the center of campus.
  • The Lodge

    The lodge sleeps eighteen in six rooms. The main floor of the lodge is where students gather to cook, play games, and eat meals. Downstairs is a classroom with a Bush student-created mural. During the winter months, cross country skiers can stop into the downstairs "warming hut" for a break from the elements.
