Camp cabins are basic but comfortable. All are fully enclosed with electricity; some have windows and heat for year-round use and others are unheated with screen windows. Beds are either bunk or stand-alone wood frames with foam mattresses. In most units, bathrooms are in a central shower house, a short walk from the cabin.
Campers in some specialty programs live in alternate housing. Adventure Trip participants live in cabins while on site at Camp Sealth, but will camp in tents during their off-site trips. Nocturnal campers stay in tents; and Kiwanis campers stay in a remote hammock unit. In the Outback program, campers have a “home base” cabin, but will sleep out at various campsites on our property throughout the week.
Nearly every unit has a central bathhouse with toilets, sinks, and showers and each unit (age-group) uses its own bathhouse. All bathrooms have running water, flush toilets, and hot water. Showers have privacy curtains and separate spaces for changing. We have fully private, accessible bathrooms for those who request it. The cabins in Wrangler (horse camp) have in-cabin bathrooms and showers.
At Camp Sealth, all bathrooms and shower houses are considered gender-neutral. Cabin groups use an assigned bathroom in their home unit. Each cabin signs up for shower times and makes them effectively single-gender/more private during their use. These bathrooms may be used by any cabin in the age group and all conventional social norms about respect, modesty, and civility apply.
