Island County’s Whidbey and Camano islands are both popular tourism destinations. A regional destination marketing organization, the 2% Joint Advisory Board for Island County Tourism (JAB), is responsible for marketing them. The board oversees advertising, film productions, visits by travel media, promotional campaigns, and more. Camp Casey venues and staff are often highlighted.
For several years, Camp Casey Conference Coordinator Robyn Myers has represented Central Whidbey Island lodging on JAB. She also serves on the 2% Lodging Tax Advisory Board for Island County, annually reviewing and awarding grants to fund promotions, events, and visitor centers. A photo of Robyn holding a coffee cup and admiring scenery is featured in tourism itineraries translated into six languages.
When Whidbey Island graphic designer Scott Rosenkranz was seeking models this fall to star in a new tourism campaign, he once again turned to Camp Casey. He recruited local residents Michael and Jeannie Sandahl. Michael works as a multiskilled tradesman in facilities at Camp Casey. Their photos are now on a large display in the baggage claim area at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and the January issue of Seattle Magazine. Over 150,000 print copies of a map featuring the couple is being distributed throughout the Northwest and photos of them are prominent on the county website.
