The Beach Camp summer program is a one of a kind ocean sports and marine science summer camp held each summer on the Sunset Bay Wharf in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds.
The program combines mission based marine science education with traditional ocean beach activities such as sea kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, beach combing, beach biking, skim boarding, and snorkeling. Our program also includes a fleet of outboard powered Zodiacs for fun and exploring our marine habitats.
The Beach Camp Program’s mission is two-fold. To educate and challenge our K-8 summer students, and to empower our Outdoor Education summer staff with resume building leadership skills and lifelong friendships with other undergrads from around the country and the world.
Beach Camp is located only minutes from downtown Seattle, providing summer staff the opportunity to develop contacts and local knowledge in one of the most vibrant employment markets in the country for young people. Summer interns live and work on the Sunset Bay Wharf and receive room and board plus a $2,500 stipend for the 10 week season. Graduating seniors are eligible for off season employment and accommodations.
The Sunset Bay Wharf resembles a mini city over the water with summer interns able to pursue interests in a range of operational areas, from marine science to water sports, photo video, power boats, biking and sandcastles.
