Another week at Camp Sealth approaches...

PKU Camp at Camp Sealth is an annual occurrence at Camp Fire USA's delightful Camp Sealth on Vashon Island. Sealth is a residential camp that runs throughout the summer for week-long overnight sessions, with all the perks of a good old-fashioned summer camp! Activities at Sealth include but are not limited to limitless fun and games, nature discovery sessions, arts and crafts, volleyball, soccer, archery, canoeing, rowing and funyaking, hikes, horseback riding, swimming, overnights, and the well-loved theme meals, all-camp games and traditions!

The dedicated UW clinic staff works throughout the year to prepare a delicious low-protein menu that is similar to that served by the Sealth kitchen, ensuring the nutritional needs of camp's PKU campers are met and their camp experience seamlessly integrated with that of the other campers. In collaboration with Campfire and the PKU Action Group, the clinic staff do all they can to assist campers financially. The campers and staff alike always have a blast at camp. We hope you'll join us!

This year, PKU camp will be July 29 - August 2, 2014.
