Special Projects this Weekend:
Legendary Leaf Removal
Fall and winter months have left Camp Sealth covered in leaves. Although the trees look gorgeous during the fall, they sure do make a mess! It would be a HUGE help if volunteers helped us rake and remove these in preparation for spring.
The buildings at camp could use your help! Being right next to the beautiful Puget Sound sure does have it’s perks, but the salty air sure does wreak havoc on paint. You can help clean up the outside of our cabins with a new fresh coat of paint! (Weather Dependent)
Whether you like to be out in the woods on the trail, or
chopping it! We have the option for interested attendees to work on our trails to prep them for the fast growing frenzy of plants that pop out in the spring! We also will be stocking up our woodpiles for a long season of warm and cozy fires around the camp – and have plenty of wood to split!
Patch Production Party
This is a great project for those who have an attention to detail! Help mass-produce our summer patches by hand! Screen printing the patches for our summer programs is a huge undertaking, so we appreciate any help we can get. And just think, this summer someone will earn a patch that you handmade!
Do you have a green thumb or love nurturing fruits and vegetables? Then we have the job for you! Our garden is currently in need of a little TLC to get ready for the upcoming growing season. This garden allows Campers to learn about the importance of sustainable gardening, as well as enjoying lots of healthy snacks along the way!
If you have knack and a talent for woodworking, we could really use your help! Some of camp’s decks and porches need new lumber to help make them beautiful again. With the guidance and help of our Facilities Managers, you can help us replace some boards around camp!
The recent cold and rainy weather has caused a pothole problem on the camp roads. We are in need of extra help to replace the gravel and road along camp’s most used sections of roads, which will make travel in and out of camp easier for all!
What to Expect
Plan on arriving at 10 AM Saturday morning to check in and learn about our projects and sign up for those that interest you! Please bring a sack lunch with for Saturday. Please plan to work until 4 PM on Saturday. After clean up and rest, you can join us for a hot and delicious meal in the Rounds Hall. Saturday evening is a choose your own adventure, either head home for the evening or stay the night and enjoy some free time at camp and partake in evening camp activities! On Sunday, a hot breakfast will be served at 8 AM and after which we will finish working on our projects for those interested and available. Please plan to pack up and clean your cabin by noon on Sunday.
Saturday evening is a time for relaxing, making new friends, a campfire, or other camp activities. Bring an acoustic instrument, games, or other entertainment to share.
Youth will be under the supervision of their chaperone(s) at all times. Youth 6th grade and older should be able to work most of the service hours. We ask that youth under 18 years who wish to stay the evening at camp should be accompanied by an adult for supervision. All youth under 18 years of age who provide at least three hours of service will receive a Sealth Service emblem and a community service letter. Call camp about bringing your youth group (Camp Fire, Scouts, etc.) to a service weekend. We are happy to make special arrangements for youth to volunteer at camp!
Lodging and Meals
If you reserve to stay at camp we will provide you with lodging in cabins in some of our heated cabins. You may be sharing space with other volunteers. Meals will be hot and nutritious. We will provide both dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.
What to Bring
Saturday sack lunch, water bottle, work gloves and work clothes, extra clothes in case you get wet, and rain gear. If you are staying overnight please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, personal items, flashlight, favorite board games or other evening entertainment.
