OVERNIGHT CAMP

Canoeing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


Camp is a place where we teach kids about acceptance and tolerance. We co-exist with other campers, share stories, and life lessons and learn to appreciate others for who they are. Camp Seymour is a place where kids can feel as if they belong.

We are excited to share that on March 23, Washington State released guidance for overnight camps to operate in Phase 3. We are optimistic that Pierce County will return to phase 3 before June 27, which will allow us to operate.
