Located on Vashon Island, Washington, Camp Sealth Day Camp offers several weeks of themed day camp programs. Each week, activities include traditional camp activities like arts & crafts, hikes, fishing, swimming, boating and more, plus activities that revolve around the week’s theme. Day Camp is open to youth entering grades K through 6 in the fall.

Learn More About Camp Sealth


Camp runs Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Optional extended care until 5:30 is available. Campers have the option to sign up for a full week (5 days) or short week (3 days). If you select the 3-day option, you can choose which three days your child will attend. Every session includes an optional overnight campout, usually on Thursday nights.


Camp Sealth Day Camp includes all of the typical camp activities offered for Camp Sealth overnight camp: touch tanks, bouldering wall, arts & crafts, outdoor living skills, nature, sports & games, fishing, swimming, rowing, teambuilding games, and more. For grades 4 and older, canoeing and archery are also options. And for the summer of 2021, we are excited to offer horseback riding as an add-on option for grades 3 and older (details below).

Horseback Riding

For an additional fee, we are offering horseback riding for day campers entering grades 3 and older. Campers will have about 1 hour of riding instruction each day, and will also get to spend time learning about the horses as well as helping feed and care for them. Learn the basics of Western riding through arena lessons, games, and a trail ride. All riding instruction is beginner level. For more details about horseback riding and safety at camp,  see our Horse Camp page.

Location & Transportation

Camp Sealth is a 400-acre property with over a mile of waterfront located on the southwest shore of Vashon Island, about 2.5 miles north of the Tahlequah ferry terminal. We are not able to offer pick-up and drop-off, so transportation is entirely the parents’ responsibility.

*Please note: Due to the travel time and ferries required to get to Vashon Island, we do not recommend registering for this camp unless you live on the island or are visiting for the week.
