About Funhouse Discovery Center

The Funhouse is the short name for The Funhouse Discovery Center of Orcas Island, Washington.

Founded by local activists in the Spring of 1999, The Funhouse is a not-for-profit community center that fosters fun and learning with dozens of hands-on kid-friendly science exhibits, a computer lab, complete audio and video production studios, a huge library of educational films and documentaries, facilities for classes and much, much more.

But the Funhouse is much more than that. It is a safety net for the youth of Orcas Island, and by extension their families.

The Funhouse provides extensive mentoring programs, after-school programs, drop-out prevention programs and support for teens.

The Funhouse is the only place on Orcas that provides these programs, and focuses on the well-being of kids 7-18.

In fact, since we opened the doors in 2000,

  • Drug use among teens has decreased significantly
  • Teen crime has dropped significantly
  • Alcohol use has declined
  • Tobacco use has declined
  • Teen pregnancy/abortion has declined
