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.

Accreditations

In addition to being accredited by the American Camp Association, Camp Sealth is proud to be certified by Outdoor Schools Washington for compliance with their safety and management standards. This program helps schools choose programs that will be safe, organized, and prepared to provide your students with a stellar overnight camp experience!
