Stanley Stamm Summer Camp
Each August, the Stanley Stamm Summer Camp gives children with serious illnesses the chance to go fishing, ride horses and take part in other activities typical of summer camp at a week-long, sleepover camp near Mt. Rainier. Our camp, founded by Seattle Children’s heart specialist Dr. Stanley Stamm, includes medical support so that children who are unable to attend other camps can join in the fun.
Campers must be patients at Seattle Children’s and between the ages of 6 and 14 years old. The camp takes place in August. Please call our office for application information and volunteer opportunities.

Stanley Stamm Camp Guild
The Stanley Stamm Camp Guild is a group of people who love camp. Many guild members are former campers, volunteers or friends and family of people who have benefited from the Stamm Camp experience. Membership is open to all.
Our guild hosts several fundraising events each year.
Come join Seattle Children’s Hospital and the members of Alpha Delta Phi at the University of Washington in our first annual Bubble Bash. The day will include tasty food, arts, carnival games, University of Washington athletes, Dubs the Husky and lots of bubbles! The highlight of the event will be the Bubble March. Starting at the northeast corner of Red Square, participants will proceed through the Liberal Arts Quadrangle blowing bubbles joined by family, friends and members of the UW and greater Seattle community. Throughout the Liberal Arts Quadrangle will be all the carnival games and food. Save the date and get excited to blow some bubbles!
Our camp offers hundreds of volunteer opportunities during the week of camp. We would not be able to offer this incredible experience to our campers without dedicated medical and non-medical volunteers. 2013 camp dates for volunteers are August 18 to 23.
