We offer Teen Camp for middle school and high school students going into 7th – 9th grades. We also offer Pre-Teen Camp for kids entering 5th and 6th grades. While we don't offer Summer Camp for teens going into 10th – 12th grades, we do invite them to join our CIT Program (see below) or check with other Clubs about Teen Summer Camps.
Four days each week we take our Teen and Pre-Teen Camps on field trips throughout the Seattle area, including water parks, hikes, beach trips, and more! Teens and pre-teens also have one Club Day each week, where they stay at the Club and enjoy activities in the Teen Room!
To promote personal responsibility and trust building, we give our teens additional privileges as part of our summer program. Teens are allowed to bring up to $20 to spend on field trips, walk around in groups of 3-6 on certain field trips, and use approved electronic devices during our free time period each day.
Please remember to bring a lunch, water, swim suit and towel, book, and good walking shoes every day!

Counselor in Training (CIT)
Our CIT Program is for youth grades 8th – 12th.
The goal of the CIT Program is for youth to learn new skills and see what it is like to work as part of our summer camp staff. Several of our CIT's go on to become summer camp staff when they are older.
CIT's assist camp directors and summer camp staff with several duties, including helping to coordinate daily schedules, planning activities for campers, helping supervise campers, and attending weekly field trips.
Only a current membership and an account are required to participate in the program. For questions or to sign up, please contact our Program Director, Casey Hewes
