New Opportunities for Teens in Mountaineers Summer Camps

If you or someone you know is between the ages of 14 and 17 and looking for an inspiring summer in the outdoors, look no further than Summer Camp! Join us in Seattle for an overnight adventure with other teens, or build leadership skills as a Counselor in Training.

Regardless of how old you are, you can’t deny that summer camp is a fun place to be. We get to play games, make friends, and explore beautiful parts of the Northwest. We work hard to make camp an inclusive, welcoming place, and we’re excited to expand that welcome to teens this summer! 

In addition to our existing Counselor-in-Training program, Seattle Summer Camps now are offering teens ages 14-17 the chance to participant in summer camps. Whether you’re looking to develop your leadership skills or itching to get out on an overnight trip, you’re invited to be a part of our camp community. No Mountaineers Camp or backpacking experience is necessary to join in on the fun.

Alumni adventures

Teens who have aged out of summer camp are invited to join us for the inaugural year of Alumni Adventures! We'll continue our outdoor skills development, challenge ourselves by choice, and brush up on our camp games. Join us for a four-day backpacking trip in either July or August. Both alumni and non-alumni are welcome.

Become A counselor in training 

Counselors in Training (CIT) bring enthusiasm and energy to camp every summer, and are an important part of our Mountaineers Camp Community. This year, CITs have the option to join camp in one of two roles: All-Time Belayer or Junior Counselor. All-Time Belayers spend their mornings belaying campers and leading games at our climbing sites, while Junior Counselors help lead their camp group through daily activities and get to practice their teaching skills.
