Camp Seafarer

We are an inclusive environment that celebrates an all-girl overnight camping experience.

Camp Seafarer

Camp Seafarer for girls is an inclusive environment where campers set goals, develop leadership skills and take part in unique activities they may not explore at home. Girls celebrate their capabilities and accomplishments by earning ranks in activities. Camp Seafarer girls learn lifelong skills that support success long after their session has ended. Campers return summer after summer and make lifelong friends and connections from their shared experiences at Overnight Camp.

The Power of Camp

Summer overnight camp is an adventurous, independence-building experience for girls. The benefits of spending a week or more away from parents and meeting kids from all walks of life extend beyond the fun and friendships. Campers increase their self-confidence, independence and resilience.

The Power of Camp

A Camp Like None Other

One, two or four-week overnight camp sessions give campers, ages 6 - 16, more confidence and independence as they spend longer periods of time at Camp Seafarer. Our CILT program provides a bridge between the camper and the counselor experience.

Program Ranks

Our program model, focused on camper choice and achievement, means campers explore their interests and learn new skills. Through choice, campers pick their activities and through personal achievement, they earn ranks.

In addition to our extensive Land and traditional Camp activities, we are home to one of the largest boat fleets in the Southeast. We partner with US Sailing and campers can earn Sailing and Powerboating certifications.


A Day in the Life

Every day is a perfect day at Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer. Spend it on the water, on the basketball court or on the fairway. When campers choose their activities, work on their ranks and achieve their goals, each day is different, perfect and fun.
