Camp Traditions

Family Camp is designed to give participants the feel of a full week of summer camp, condensed into just a couple of days. To do that, we include some of our favorite camp traditions, including:

  • Campfire & S’mores: What would camp be without a campfire? Join us on Friday night for a classic campfire with skits and songs led by the Camp Sealth staff, and end the campfire with a s’mores dessert.
  • Theme Lunch: For Saturday lunch, the staff will pick a theme, and everyone is encouraged to dress up for the theme! You can raid the camp costume closet or get creative and make your own using art supplies or natural materials. There will be awards given out for the best costumes!
  • Picnic Dinner: This classic summer meal includes hot dogs and hamburgers, baked beans, potato salad, watermelon, and lemonade – does it get any more summer than that?
  • Talent Show: On Saturday night, you take the stage and show us what you’ve got! Parents and kids are invited to sign up for the talent show and give us your best performances: singing, skits, playing music, comedy, dance – it’s up to you!
  • PJ Breakfast: On Sunday morning, don’t bother getting dressed! Come to breakfast in your PJs (wear pink PJs if you have them!) and join us for the Pink Pajama song and parade around the dining hall.

Dates & Times

Family Camp is June 28 – 30, 2019. Check-in is anytime after 2:00 pm on Friday, and check-out is by 12:00 pm on Sunday. Your family has the option to stay for the full weekend (we highly recommend it!) or just for Saturday night.

Meals & Accommodations

Families stay in camp-style cabins with basic utilities. Bathrooms are located nearby in separate buildings. Some accommodations are available for those who need it, including ADA accessible cabins and in-room bathrooms. All meals are provided during the weekend, and snacks, coffee and tea are also available. Most special diets can be accommodated. Learn more about our sleeping accommodations and food service.

Cost & Registration

To make Family Camp accessible to as many families as possible, we offer flexible registration options, including:

  • $85 per person for one night only (Saturday to Sunday)
  • $600 cabin rate for full weekend – up to 8 participants

Cabin Rate Info: The cabin rate is a group registration rate that allows up to 8 people to attend together and pay one flat fee. This can apply to a single family or multiple families willing to stay together. All participants will stay in a single cabin (room). If two or more families register with the cabin rate, they should register separately and select the “Cabin Rate” option during registration; families must mutually request each other.

In addition to these pricing options, we also offer financial aid for eligible families.
