Register Now for Summer 2023

We are excited to resume hosting Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer Summer Day Camp!  Your children can connect with new friends, discover new activities, and make memories that will last a lifetime. Through sports, swimming, crafts, and fun games, our counselors teach lessons that promote our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility all while having fun and ensuring a safe environment for your children. 

Parents, we know your child’s safety is your number one priority so you can rest assured that we are consistently following CDC and NCDHHS guidelines when it comes to running our day camp. We will have enhanced cleaning, social distancing, and health screening protocols in place to take care of our staff and participants.  Although day camp may look a bit different from recent years due to the protocols, you can still count on the same safe, meaningful, and fun-filled camp that you’ve come to know and trust.  

Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer 2023 Summer Day Camp will offer a co-ed program open to campers in rising grades 1–5. Day Camp will operate Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 pm., and transportation will be available. Camp is open to families living in Pamlico and/or Craven County.

Day Campers-in-Leadership-Training (Day CILTs) will learn leadership and basic job skills in a fun camp environment. Open to rising grades 7 - 9.

Program Description: In a time when everyone is continuing to increase technology use, our Camp encourages teens to spend time in nature and provides them with the skills to become future leaders. The Campers-in-Leadership-Training Program is an experience-based learning program. The program is one part structured learning, one part self-guided leadership, and a ton of fun and adventure. Our CILTs are a valued part of our summer camps, where they will develop friendships, a strong work ethic and an appreciation for the great outdoors. 

The CILT program includes:

  • Shadowing counselors
  • Lead activities and planning curriculum 
  • Weekly leadership training 
  • Goal Setting
