Update from Camp Casey Conference Services concerning COVID-19

Last updated on August 4, 2020 

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

Camp Casey has reopened small occupancy lodging to visitors.  The Alumni House, Firehall, Staff Quarters and Quartermaster’s Building are open and currently being booked for future reservations.  

The Campground at Camp Casey will remain closed for summer 2020.

Fort Casey Inn reopened in mid-June! However there are limited bookings due to our cautious requirement of at least 3 days of vacancy between rentals. 

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. 
  • W are following government guidelines for cleaning and 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 most events. If your event is scheduled after August 1 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.
