Find Your Community at Camp Colman

Founded in 1912 by the Colman family, Camp Colman was built on a foundation of nurturing the potential of youth, promoting healthy living, and fostering social responsibility. The camp as we know it today, has been providing kids, teens, and adults an opportunity to explore nature, learn outdoor skills, and gain a new found respect for the environment since 1966.

Located on the Key Peninsula just over an hour from the greater Seattle area, Camp Colman sits at the foothills of the majestic Olympic Mountains on Case Inlet. Boasting over 100 acres, the property includes over a half mile of Puget Sound beachfront with views of the Cascade Mountains, an enclosed six acre lagoon, an expansive lodge, and quaint cabins nestled among the evergreen trees.

With an ecologically diverse location and over 100 years of hosting campers, we can proudly say that Camp Colman is the perfect place for all to discover who they are and the gifts they have to share.

Tiered pricing options and financial assistance are available to ensure our amazing camp experience is available to all.

Affordable for All

We offer a voluntary, two-tiered pricing program based on the needs of your family. This program is completely confidential and in no way affects the quality of the experience your child receives.

  • Tier 1 represents the full cost of camp operations. 
  • Tier 2 represents the full cost of camp operations, in addition to long-term wear, tear, and depreciation. Families who voluntarily pay Tier 2 prices help us to ensure our camps and outdoor properties continue to thrive. 

Our goal is to remove barriers that prevent anyone from participating in our programs, including financial barriers. If our lowest tier price still creates a financial barrier that prevents you from participating in our programs, we invite you to fill out a financial assistance application. Once we have reviewed your application, you will receive a code by email that you can use at checkout to automatically apply your approved award, or you may pay a $50 deposit and choose the financial assistance option during registration and apply for your award at a later date.
