At Camp Orkila, day campers participate in theme-based weeks full of activity and camp fun! Each session lasts one week, and runs Monday through Friday with days beginning at 8:45am and ending at 4:45pm. Campers are divided into two age groups:  Level 1 (1st-3rd graders) and Level 2 (4th-6th graders). Both  age levels will have a field trip once a week. Day campers may also register for on-site swim lessons. Lunch is provided.

If you have any questions, please contact Lynda Sanders at lsanders@seattleymca.org or call the Camp Orkila office at 360 376 2678. Registration for 2017 will begin in the fall.


Swim Lessons held at Camp Orkila on Orcas Island are offered in two-week sessions (8 classes) and are held on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. No regular lessons are held on Tuesdays. Children may enroll in swim lessons without attending day camp or in conjunction with day camp. Campers who are enrolled in Day Camp and miss a day of swim lessons due to a field trip will have a make-up lesson Tuesday. Lessons are offered at 12:00pm and 12:30pm. Six levels of swim lessons are offered: Polliwog, Guppy, Minnow, Fish, Flying Fish, and Shark. Skills are tested the first day and students are placed in the appropriate level.

A $25 deposit per camper per session is required to hold your spot.

To register via phone, please call Camp Orkila at (360) 376-2678.
