Camp Sealth…Your Ultimate Outdoor Classroom!

Encompassing 400 incredible acres including an extensive trail system, a private beach and numerous diverse ecosystems, Camp Sealth is the perfect venue for experiential education.

Our Program Philosophy

Camp Fire was established with a strong foundation in providing positive outdoor experiences for youth and it is fundamental to our mission, core values, and programs. We believe in the power of nature to awaken a child’s senses, curiosity and desire to learn. With our completely inquiry-based program, our students are taught to study and evaluate the natural world. Through hands-on learning, they develop a deeper understanding of the scientific method and we hope – a curiosity and love for the environment.
