We’re so excited to be announcing our weekly themes for our 2024 summer sessions at Camp Sealth! Each week both our overnight and day camp staff will incorporate the theme into daily activities, all camp events, meals, and more! Participation in the theme is always optional, however, we encourage our campers to bring any costumes or accessories they have related to their week’s theme – Camp also has many costumes to borrow!

Session 1: Adventure on the High Seas (July 1 – 6)

It’s o-FISH-al: you never know what type of aquatic life you’ll run into when you’re under the sea! Mermaids, pirates, and deep-sea divers welcome. This is the perfect week to dress up as your favorite sea creature, play on the beach, or live like a pirate. This week is all about the ocean and everything in it: pirates, mermaids, and more!

Session 2: Elemental (July 8 – 13)

Earth, air, fire, or water; this week is centered around the elements. Get ready for themed waterfront programming and the mastering of the 4 forces. This is the perfect week to channel any Avatar energy, or to dress up in the colors of the elements!

Session 3: Whiskers and Paws (July 17 – 20)

This week is a shoutout to our furry friends! Cats and dogs are the focus of the week, in everything except for actual presence on camp property. Be ready for whisker-painting and paw-print mysteries throughout our first short session of the summer!

Session 4: Out of this World (July 22 – 27)

This camp session is about to be out-of-this-world! Travel to infinity and beyond through the constellations all in time to make it back to planet Earth by the end of the week! Campers may dress up as aliens or astronauts, attend Jedi Training, learn about astronomy, and see if they will survive an alien invasion!

Session 5: Camp Olympics (July 29 – August 3)

This week is a score for all you sports fans out there! Represent some of this year’s countries in the Olympics and go for the gold with your own cabin group! Your cabin will compete all week in a friendly “camp”-etition to see which country will bring home the gold!

Session 6: Myths and Fantasy (August 8 – 10)

Whether you’re a Greek God, a warlock, or a witch (oh my!) – join us for a magical week of camp. It’s sure to be a SPELLBINDING experience! Whether you want to dress up as a princess, cast a spell with your friends, or you’re more likely to be found at Shrek’s swamp, this week will be all things fairytale.

Session 7: Wild Wild West (August 12 – 17)

Howdy partner! Mount up and get ready to ride into the west of the past! Cowboy hats are optional, not required. Bring your cowboy hat and flannel because this week will be a rootin’ tootin’ good time. Dive into the world of horses, ranchers, and gold this week. We’ll have events and themed meals centered on the Wild Wild West, plus a special Hoedown up at Wrangler where campers can witness life with horses firsthand!

Session 8: Flower Power (August 19 – 24)

April showers bring… August flowers! Our final session of the summer will be centered around the growth of the natural world.. Get prepared for deer spottings, trips to the camp garden, and plenty of petals!

P.S. We’re seeking costume donations!

Do you have lightly used costumes, formal wear, or accessories that need a home where they will be a part of fashion shows, photoshoots, campfire skits, and camp events? Reach out to us at campstaff@campfireseattle.org and we can coordinate a time and place for you to drop off! (please no shoes, weapons, or fragile items)
