Our Mission

Our Mission

As branches of the YMCA of the Triangle, Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer share the YMCA’s Mission: To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

In that Christian principles are caring and inclusive, we are respectful of various expressions of faith and serve families and campers from all traditions, backgrounds and perspectives. Our Mission compels us to embrace, reflect and celebrate the richness of diversity within each other and the community. We invite, welcome and involve everyone to work side by side with us to further our Cause – to strengthen the foundations of community.

Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). ACA accreditation is voluntary and verifies that a camp has complied with up to 263 standards for health, safety, and program quality. Families can be assured that these camps have made a commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children.  ACA standards are recognized by courts of law and government regulators as the standards of the camp community.

Character Counts

At Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer, we also believe that character counts. Building character in a safe, nurturing environment is core to our camp experience. Fostering self-confidence, independence, consideration of others, respect for our fragile environment, and a spirit of inclusion and cooperation have been our goals since we opened our gates over 60 years ago. At Camp, we help campers grow into the best version of themselves.
