Private Home
The cost for housing is CAN $30/$35 per person, per night.
Children 12 and under are half price.

Bedding and towels will be provided. Where possible, students will have access to the kitchen to prepare their own breakfast with their own food. Lunch and dinner are provided at the school for a fee – visit the website for the separate meals request form in May. Circumstances will vary: Some hosts will continue to stay at their houses and rent out a room or two, while others may be away during that time and rent their whole house to West Coast Institute participants. For the most part, bathrooms will be shared. Unless requested otherwise, each student will have his or her own bed. Those who apply first are likely to get the best options (e.g. master bedrooms with ensuite), those who apply late in the process might have to share rooms. Fees are payable to your host. If mailing, payment is sent to the host.

The areas closest to Sunrise Waldorf School (from 1 = closest to 7 = farthest) are:
1. Cowichan Station, 2. Cowichan Bay, 3. Cobble Hill, 4. Mill Bay, 5. Duncan, 6. Glenora, and 7. Chemainus.

While there are several decent campgrounds located at a reasonable distance from Sunrise Waldorf School, we would strongly recommend not to stay at Riverside RV and Camping in Duncan.
