Stanley Stamm Summer Camp
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 team of both medical and non-medical volunteers from the community 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.
For information, please email Michele Rebert.
Volunteer Staff: August 13-18, 2023
Campers: August 14-18, 2023
Our theme for 2023 is Lion King!
Seattle Children’s Stanley Stamm Summer Camp welcomes campers between the ages of 6 and 14 who have been patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital as an inpatient or outpatient.
Camper applications will be distributed electronically at the beginning of February and need to be submitted by April 1st.
Please email Ursala Schwenn, Stamm Camp clinical coordinator, for more information or a camper application.
Volunteers help provide a fun and safe environment for children participating at Seattle Children’s Stanley Stamm Summer Camp. We would not be able to offer this incredible experience to our campers without dedicated medical and non-medical volunteers.
Volunteer applications will be distributed electronically the beginning of February and need to be submitted by May 1st to be considered.
