Update from Camp Casey Conference Services concerning COVID-19

Last updated on April 19, 2021 

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

Governor Inslee has issued new guidance for summer camps. You can read this guidance here. 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 low-occupancy lodging (maximum 10 people) is open to visitors. The Alumni House, Firehall, Staff Quarters and Quartermaster’s Building are open and you can book your stay here (choose “Camp Casey” from the “Select Location” dropdown). Fort Casey Inn units are also currently open at a limited capacity.

Our catering team is offering delivered meals to clients at Camp Casey and the Fort Casey Inn. You can view the menu of items when you book online here.

The physical office is closed as the office staff move home to remote operations. The voicemail and office email inbox 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 that complies with CDC recommendations. 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. 
  • We 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 toward the rescheduled event. For small, household group rentals that have paid a deposit, we will refund in full if you need to cancel due to COVID-19 illness or government restrictions.

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 May 1st, 2021 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.
