Seabeck 2019 

All Community Summer Camp
August 18-24

Seabeck Conference Center, Seabeck, WA

Rooms are limited; register for Seabeck 2019 early!

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.

Now in its 57th year, CSL families, singles, couples, and Sages come together for a week of heaven at CSL’s All Community Summer Camp at the historic Seabeck Conference Center. Sitting on 90 beautiful acres with sweeping views of Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains, and just 90 minutes from Seattle, Seabeck is a magical place to rest, reset, and recharge, while experiencing the unbridled joy and freedom of this DIY summer camp experience.

Seabeck camp is created for the community, by the community, and includes everything from workshops led by our amazing staff ministers, arts and crafts like t-shirt decorating and tie-dyeing, playshops led by your co-campers, movie night, evening vespers with Kathianne Lewis, a concert with our guest musician, and our famous Seabeck talent show and slip-n-slide. Don’t worry, there is also plenty of time to work on your tan, 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.

2018 Workshop Theme: Spiritual Practices for Times Like These (Stay tuned for 2019 workshop)

A special part of the Seabeck experience is deepening spiritual practice. To help facilitate that, every Seabeck, our wonderful staff ministers lead us through a daily spiritual practice workshop series. This year, Revs. Abigail, Debora, Harold, Michael and Patric will present a different workshop each morning: Spiritual Practices for Times Like These.

During this week of workshops you’ll cultivate your relationship with the Divine using a different spiritual practice each morning based on the book, “The Seven Whispers” by Christina Baldwin. You don’t need to be a prophet, Bodhisattva, or spiritual master to cultivate your personal interaction with the Divine. It is part of our natural human capacity to discover the language of calling the Divine and receiving Its response to us. Through cultivating an intimate relationship with the Divine, we rise up to meet the needs of these extraordinary times we live in!

Youth Programming:

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, arts and crafts projects, Legos, puzzles, etc., along with nature walks, a beach walk, slip-n-slide, and other activities. Youth rejoin their families for meals together.

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, play 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) and there are experienced campers to guide you in the process.

The Seabeck experience is a terrific time for you to connect with other families and youth, as well as have time connecting with the overall community. We stay in various housing arrangements 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 program all week together (males and females separate).

Please feel free to contact Janell Shiers if you have questions.

Next Thought Group:

CSL’s Young Adult Group for those aged 18-32, Next Thought, gathers at Seabeck every year. Those registered as participating in Next Thought have their housing grouped together, and manage their own specialized camp programming.
