Update from Camp Casey Conference Services concerning COVID-19

Last updated on May 22, 2020 

Seattle Pacific University (SPU) is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on campus and at Camp Casey.

SPU and Camp Casey have cancelled lodgings at Camp Casey through July 31, 2020.  We are hopeful to have some operations resume August 1, 2020. Fort Casey Inn is also currently closed and we hope to announce a reopen date soon. 

The physical office is closed as the office staff move home to remote operations.  The voicemail will be checked Monday-Friday.  Please email us at campcasey@spu.edu.

What steps are being taken at Camp Casey?

  • The Office of Facility and Project Management maintains a regular and thorough cleaning process around Camp Casey. Day-to-day cleaning operations are governed by an infectious disease protocol, and high-touch surfaces and restroom fixtures throughout Camp Casey are cleaned regularly. 
  • When Camp Casey re-opens to groups, we will be following government guidelines for cleaning and any requirements for distancing, masks, etc. Our dining employees also follow strict rules for cleaning and food safety. 

What if I need to reschedule my event?

We will work with you and accommodate you as date availability allows, preferably within the same calendar year.  If your event happens only at a particular time of the year, we will do our best to reschedule you for the same time in 2021. Either way, your deposit can be applied towards the rescheduled event.

What if I need to cancel my event?

Our hope is that you will be able to reschedule your event. If you are unable to reschedule and your organization chooses to cancel, we are currently refunding deposits for June and July events. If your event is scheduled after July and you choose to cancel at this time, you may be subject to the cancellation terms in the contract. Please reach out to Camp Casey staff to discuss your unique situation.  

Island County Public Health has issued community recommendations. Please review these as you plan.
