Dr. Stanley Stamm: A Quiet Hero
Learn more about why Dr. Stanley Stamm started the camp and how his vision has impacted children with complex medical conditions.
Each August, Seattle Children’s Stanley Stamm Summer Camp gives nearly 100 children with chronic medical conditions the chance to go fishing, ride horses and take part in other typical summer camp activities at a week-long sleepover camp near Mt. Rainier.
Our camp, founded by Seattle Children's heart specialist Dr. Stanley Stamm, includes a Seattle Children’s medical team and a fully equipped infirmary so that children who are unable to attend other camps due to unique and often complex medical needs can join in the fun.
Stamm Camp is subsidized by our generous donors so families don’t have to pay a fee.
Stamm Camp in the News
Seattle Children’s Stanley Stamm Camp welcomes campers between the ages of 6 and 14 who have been seen at Seattle Children's Hospital or its clinics, and who may be unable to attend other camps due to their medical needs. Camp dates for 2017 are August 14 to 18. Please call our office for more information and to request a camper application.
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. Camp dates for volunteers in 2017 are August 13 to 18. Contact us for more information.
