We are awaiting updated guidance with recent lifted Washington State restrictions. A timeline is being developed for summer and fall 2022 policy use of unventilated spaces. Currently we are still adhering to the following guidance below. 

Seattle Pacific University (SPU) continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on campus and Camp Casey.

Governor Inslee has issued guidance for overnight camps. You can read this guidance here:  Overnight Camp Guidelines We appreciate our guests following all current government guidance for COVID-19 prevention. If you need to cancel or reschedule due to COVID-19, please let us know.

Camp Casey is open to two types of visitors:

What buildings are open at Camp Casey?

  • dorm style lodging (Company Quarters A, H, J, BOQ)
  • Smaller houses (Staff Quarters, Alumni House, Quartermaster’s Building, Firehall)
  • Due to ventilation concerns, no indoor meeting space is available for rental, including locations rented with lodging.  Mess Hall A may be rented for indoor meetings, as it is the only fully ventilated building at Casey.

Our catering team is offering delivered and in person dining to clients at Camp Casey and the Fort Casey Inn. You can view the menu of optional catering items when you book online here. When you book your group camp with us, we will work with you to coordinate Mess Hall A meal times and menu at the time of contracting.

The physical office is closed to in person visits, but is in operation. The voicemail and office email inbox will be checked Monday-Friday. Please email us at campcasey@spu.edu.
