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.
