Dates & Registration

campers jumping off dockSplash! camp spends time every day in and on the water. Kids will get a chance to try a little of everything – swimming, boating, and fishing on Camp Sealth’s waterfront. Then, take a break from the cold Puget Sound water and go on a field trip to swim at a local pool.

What to Expect

Water activities take up about 2-3 hours each day. In between swimming and boating, Splash! campers will get to do all the regular camp activities, too. Some of the water-related activity options include:

  • Boating (canoeing or rowing)
  • Swimming/wading
  • Fishing
  • Marine touch tanks
  • Sand castles

In addition to the regular Camp Sealth packing list, Splash! campers should bring:

  • An extra swimsuit and towel
  • Swim goggles (optional)

Safety

All water activities at Camp Sealth are supervised by staff certified in life guarding and trained in boating safety. Campers must pass a tippy canoe test to participate in boating activities, and need to pass a swim test to swim without a life jacket. Life jackets are always worn in boats. The public pool has professional lifeguards on duty.

Please note:  All water activities (except the pool) take place in or on Puget Sound, which is quite cold. Staff will take steps to avoid hypothermia.
