We recognize the depth of responsibility you are sharing with our staff when your child comes to YMCA Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer. We are partners in parenting during the weeks your child lives at Camp.
Our seasoned staff is trained first and foremost in safety. All Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer staff participate in a full, seven days of staff training before campers arrive for the summer. We also hold in-service trainings throughout the summer. Camp staff are trained on their activity, cabin management, communication, leadership, leading devotions and more.
From technical skills on activities to relational skills within the cabin, our staff is vigilant, and they are constantly looking out for the well-being of your child.
Every cabin has two to three counselors and approximately 10 - 13 campers who live with your child in the cabin. These counselors help manage all aspects of cabin life and work tirelessly to create the caring community that allows your child to flourish.
Cabin life is a key piece of your campers overnight camp experience. We try to honor at least one cabinmate request per child and intentionally group campers together around age, grade, previous years at camp and other factors.
Each cabin is well lit with excellent ventilation, and features fully furnished interiors with twin bunk beds.
All cabins have restrooms, sinks with mirrors and showers. Shower stalls are individual so campers can shower in complete privacy.
