Find Your Belongings

Items Left on Site

Please remember to label each piece of your participant's gear and clothing with their first and last name. YMCA of Greater Seattle Camping & Outdoor Leadership is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen items. We will attempt to reunite lost items with owners if they are labeled.

YMCA Camping & Outdoor Leadership is limiting items held in lost and found after each session ends to the following:

  • Jackets, sweatshirts, and t-shirts
  • Pants and shorts
  • Sleeping bags, blankets, and pillows
  • Prescription glasses, durable medical equipment, prescription medication
  • Shoes and backpacks

These items will be kept for no longer than two weeks from the end of the session. Please note that these items will be held at the discretion of staff. Items that are soiled, damaged, or otherwise deemed not able to be safely stored will be disposed of.

Items Left in Transit

Items left on the bus or at the drop-off and pick-up locations during the transportation process are returned to the Seattle office and donated two weeks after sessions end.

Please remember to check that your participant has their luggage, sleeping bag, and pillow when you pick them up. All unclaimed items are donated to charity. Contact the Camping & Outdoor Leadership main office for help locating lost items at
