Here at Camp Fire and Camp Sealth, we are incredibly grateful for the support of our community! Each year more than a thousand volunteers – and many of them our incredible teen leaders – join together to help us run our Day Camps, lead our Camp Fire Groups, keep campers safe and healthy at Camp Sealth, clear our trails, paint our buildings, make photocopies, and the list continues. We couldn’t do it without you, and we thank you!
As we gear up for a busy spring and summer ahead we are kicking off the season with a Service Weekend at Camp Sealth this March 5-6, 2016 and we invite you to join us! This weekend is free to attend and includes dinner, breakfast, and overnight accommodations so you can spend the weekend out at camp. All ages are welcome to attend, including youth with an adult chaperone. All youth under age 18 who complete three or more hours of service will receive a letter from Camp Fire documenting their work as well as a Service to Sealth patch.
What are we going to do?
Patch Production Party
Did you know – we print many of our patches by hand out at Camp Sealth? Patches like our archery progressions, swim checks, one match fire, and more are made on site through a silk screen process. Do you have an eye for detail and a talent for repetitive motion? Screen printing the patches for our summer programs is a huge undertaking and what better way to contribute to our campers than with the creation of the badges they earn this summer.
Help us put a fresh coat of paint on some of camp’s buildings! Being beside the sea has its advantages – sunsets, anyone? But it also has a few drawbacks, including strong winds and winter weather combined with the corosive nature of salty air. Help us patch up some of our most popular cabins with some fresh paint!
Join us in prepping our garden for spring! Our Outdoor Education program uses the garden to teach youth about sustainability, producing your own food, organic gardening, and the lifecycle of plants. Weeding the beds, pulling down some invasive plants that have crept in, beginning some planting and spreading some fresh mulch are some of the tasks we’ll tackle for the day.
Whether you like to be out in the woods on the trail or chopping up some firewood, we have an option for you! Help us get the trails back in shape for spring hikers after a wild and windy winter, or take a turn chopping up wood for the wood piles!
