FUN back2B'ham FACTS


Every third weekend in May, thousands of Vikings venture to the far corner of Northwest Washington for a reunion of epic proportions. How epic, you ask?

Epic Journey

Over the past six years, Back2B'ham has hosted alumni, parents, friends and family members who traveled from 30 states and four foreign countries.

Epic Air

Bouncy houses, inflatable slides and obstacle courses, harnessed trampolines, zipline, lunching in the fresh open air… you get the idea.

Epic Brew

During Back2B'ham, 25 gallons of the Pacific Northwest’s signature elixir, Viking Blend, is consumed by staff, guests and volunteers. As for regional bites and glasses of delicious craft beer… our mathematicians are still counting.

Epic Excursions

Grab your water bottle one for one of our guided tours: kayaking on the Bay, bicycle Bellingham with the Outdoor Center, birding, outdoor art sculpture viewing, sailing & motorboat rides and high ropes course at Lakewood or go on a hike with WOOT (Western Outdoor Orientation Trips.)

Epic Entertainment

Student performers, a circus, choir concert, dance performances, improv theatre and live bands including Bellingham’s own SpaceBand and Baby Cakes.
