About Our Camp

Carlos Stamm 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.

Follow all of the Stamm Camp fun on Facebook and YouTube.

For information, please email Michele Rebert.

Camp Dates:
Volunteer Staff August 14-19, 2022
Campers August 15-19, 2022
Our theme for 2022 is Coco!

Stamm Camp in the News

Since our founding, we have relied on philanthropy. In honor of the camp’s 50th anniversary in 2016, the community that loves Dr. Stanley Stamm and his camp came together to raise $1 million to keep the camp going for another 50 years.
