Excit­ing Times Are On The Hori­zon At Pierce Coun­ty Sum­mer Camps

March 15, 2020

When it comes to camps that keep kids moving and engaged all summer, Pierce County is brimming with possibilities! Registrations are open! Check out these camps destined to inspire the very best “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” essays come September.

Skateworld Tacoma Camp

2101 W Mildred St., Fircrest, WA 98466
2018 Registration is open now.

One of our top Pierce County camp picks is Skateworld Tacoma, previously 253Skate, at 19th and Mildred.

They have all-day all-week camps for kids. It's a Montessori setting, so kids may not all be doing the same thing at the same time.

And don’t let the word "skate" in the name fool you. From arts and crafts and dance classes to field trips and even a baking class, Skateworld camp is full of creative activities to keep kids active and engaged, not just rolling in circles! Call them today and ask about their summer camp options! Their number and hours are here!

Campers even spend some of their time giving back to their community through the “Doing Good” program. It teams them up to volunteer with local resources like the Emergency Food Network, the Tacoma Rescue Mission and the Northwest Furniture Bank.

Apprentice Academy

13515 82nd Ave NW, Gig Harbor, WA, 98329
Summer camp registration is open now.

Challenge your creative little ones and even teens this summer with camps focused on painting, cartoon-inspired drawing and sculpting!

“Apprentice Academy offers art camps for children and classes and workshops for adults also,” shares our REALTOR® Janet Lee. “[It was] founded by artist Mardie Rees and serves Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Port Orchard and Bremerton.”

Gig Harbor Junior Sail Adventure Summer Camp

8209 Stinson Ave., Gig Harbor, WA 98332
Summer camp registration is open now.

Janet’s second camp pick breaks the “screen routine” and gets campers outside! “This is a great camp to get kids and teens on the water learning a new skill and away from the electronics,” she says.

This award-winning summer camp promotes sailing to children ages 6-18 at all skill levels. Building self-esteem, teamwork and a respect for the environment are key to their programs.

Camp Arnold

33712 Webster Rd E
Eatonville, WA 98328

Our REALTOR® Vic Jones raves about the Salvation Army’s Camp Arnold, founded in 1966, with its beautiful 670 acres of cabins, trails, and opportunities for endless fun! “Great overnight camp with tons of activities!” says Vic.

YMCA Camp Seymour

Located at 9725 Cramer Rd. K.P.N. Gig Harbor, WA 98329

We recommend this traditionally very popular Gig Harbor spot.

It's a YMCA camp that hosts the scouts in the summer. They employ fantastic leaders and have all the usual attractions like land & water sports and camp fire songs. They also have a zero food waste program that makes a great impact on the kids.
