NEW Day Camp Location Details

To our returning families – while we are excited to continue our 50-year tradition of Day Camp at Carkeek Park this summer, we want families to be aware that our central location for drop off, registration, and activities has changed. The heart of our day camp will be at the Piper’s Creek Center near the model plane field. View the Map

Camper groups will still be able to enjoy the highlights of this wonderful park, including hiking trails, beach access, and plenty of greenspace for group activities. We will continue to keep families updated as the schedule and final details fall into place!

Day Camp At Carkeek Park!

Campers will have the time of their lives at Carkeek Park Day Camp! Located along the Puget Sound approximately 9 miles north of downtown Seattle,  Carkeek Park enjoys 220 acres of forest, wetlands, meadow, and beach. Our day camp uses the upper meadow as a base for all operations throughout the week, giving the campers a chance to explore Carkeek’s various ecosystems! This park gives campers plenty of space to explore the outdoors, play, and make new friends!

A Week of Fun at Day Camp!

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers and staff, each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience, full of fun activities like some of the ones you will see below! Every week, campers will have a special theme that will inspire our special activities and guests. We encourage campers to try all of these wonderful activities and to share what they are passionate about too! Carkeek Day Camp is a long standing day camp for Camp Fire and we invite you to experience the magic and all it has to offer!
