2020 SUMMER CAMPS

Come explore the natural world with Seward Park Audubon Center Nature Camps. The park, located in the Rainier Valley, spans 277 acres including the city's largest stand of old-growth trees, 2.5 miles of shoreline, two playgrounds, miles of nature trails, and a lifeguarded swimming beach. Kids get to explore the ancient forest and shores while learning about birds, art, native plants, wilderness skills, or just playing and having adventures!

We offer two themed camps for summer 2019. Camps meet each day from 9 AM - 3 PM and are offered to youth ages 6-9. Scroll down for camp descriptions and our summer schedule. 

Wilderness Skills

Learn the wild ways of the woods! On this daring adventure, we’ll practice the art of wilderness survival and awareness of our surroundings as we build shelters, forage berries, explore knots and navigation, play wild games of camouflage, and hike deep into the woods tracking mysterious creatures big and small. Are you ready for the call of the wild?

Birding Friends

Have you heard the bird’s the word? We’ll get to know the beautiful winged creatures of the forests and shores of Seward Park on this fanciful flight. Armed with binoculars, we’ll prowl deep into the forest on a hunt for owls, gaze at the dance of the eagles, perfect our senses, sing like songbirds, and build our very own nests. Come fly with us on this magnificent journey!
