If you have ever worked at a summer camp, you know what it’s like – lots of hard work, long hours, and not enough pay; but also incredibly rewarding and filled with lifelong memories and friendships. The Camp Sealth staff are highly talented and give so much of themselves to make magic happen for kids – so we wanted to give a little something back to them.

How Does It Work?

Adopt-A-Staff is simple:

  • Sign up via the online form by June 19
  • We’ll match you with a staff member and send you some basic information about them
  • You put together a care package of goodies and a personal letter, and send the package to us
  • We’ll deliver all the packages to staff on a designated day

That’s it! You are welcome to include your contact information, although we don’t want our staff to feel that they are obligated to write back to you. We simply want to thank them for the amazing work they do.

The Logistics

Once you sign up using the online form, we will send you further instructions by email. You can sign up to do just one, or more if you want! You’ll be matched with someone by the end of June, and the packages need to be received by July 31. You can drop off packages at our West Seattle office, directly at camp on Vashon Island, or send them via UPS or FedEx. We will collect the packages and distribute them to the staff all at once at a designated time.

We do ask that you only sign up if you’re serious about committing. If something changes after you sign up, please let us know as soon as possible.
