Seabeck All Community Summer Camp
August 18-24, 2019
Seabeck Conference Center, Seabeck, WA
Trade your phone for flip flops and put music and meditation, arts and crafts, sun, laughter, community and connection at the top of your to-do list.
Seabeck camp is created for the community, by the community, and includes activities such as workshops led by our amazing staff ministers; arts and crafts sessions such as t-shirt decorating and tie-dyeing; playshops led by your co-campers; movie night; evening vespers with Kathianne Lewis; a concert with a guest musician, Rickie Byars; and our famous Seabeck talent show. If you seek a break from activities, you’ll also find plenty of downtime where you can read, relax, go for a swim, or simply do nothing at all. A favorite past-time of many is sitting on the porch of the Inn in a rocking chair, watching the sun set over the Olympics.

2019 Workshop Theme: The Game of Life and How to Play IT
A special part of the Seabeck experience is deepening spiritual practice. To help facilitate that, at every Seabeck camp, our wonderful staff ministers lead us through a daily spiritual practice workshop series. This year, Revs. Abigail, Debora, Harold, Michael and Patric presented a different workshop each morning: The Game of Life and How to Play It.
Youth at Camp
Children, ‘tweens and teens are involved in daily, supervised, age-appropriate programming. Enjoy having free time to do whatever you desire while your child/children are off having fun in the youth program from 9am-12:15pm and 1:30-3:15pm. Youth will enjoy playing games, taking part in arts and crafts projects, and playing with Legos and puzzles. We also offer nature walks, a beach walk, slip-n-slide, and other activities. Youth rejoin their families at mealtime.
After youth program, you can enjoy family time at the swimming lagoon; take a walk across the bridge to get an ice cream or other treat; sign up for a “playshop”; ride your bike; or enjoy bocce ball, tennis, or other outdoor activities. Or, you can have quiet time and rest up for the evening! All campers get a Seabeck t-shirt to decorate and/or tie-dye (or not), led by experienced campers for those who would like a little help.
The Seabeck experience is a terrific time for you to connect with other families and youth, as well as the overall community. We stay in camp housing and eat our meals together, family style, in the dining hall (click for a camp map).
Age groupings vary depending upon which youth are registered. If you have a 9th-12th grade teen, we have a special program just for them. They have their own housing with adult advisors and are in the program together for the whole week, with males and females separate.
Please feel free to contact Janell Shiers if you have questions.
