Day Camp At The Beach!

Campers will have the time of their lives this summer 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. Guest appearances in the past have included visits from the Reptile Man, the local fire department, and talented artists who have taught campers about their unique art techniques! Other themes we’ve had include “Crazy Hair Day” and PJ Day!”

• Nature Hikes
• Arts & Crafts
• Group Games
• Outdoor Cooking
• Storytelling
• Camp Songs Singalongs
• Homemade Ice Cream
