For those passionate about the great outdoors and developing their best leadership voice, there is simply no more valuable, fun, and rewarding way to spend a summer than at the Sunset Bay Wharf, living and working with young people from around the country and the world.

Summer at the Wharf - Beach Camp Program

The Sunset Bay Wharf Beach Camp program is a one of a kind ocean sports and marine science summer camp held at the Sunset Bay Wharf in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds. The program combines mission based marine science education with traditional ocean beach activities such as sea kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, beach biking, skim boarding, and snorkeling. The program also includes a fleet of outboard powered Zodiacs for fun and exploring our marine habitats.

The Sunset Bay Wharf summer Beach Camp program consists of two staff training weeks and 8 one week long student sessions with pairs of Sunset Bay teaching assistants leading an age specific student cabin group each week. Like any manager within an organization, our educators instruct, lead, and motivate their group of students to accomplish a wide variety of missions each week.  And like any modern organization manager, leadership is accomplished through fun and encouragement.

But what is unlike a typical management trainee job, is that our leaders live and work with young people like themselves from around the country and the world, and get a fresh start each week with a new group of students to try out new things and work toward finding their best leadership voice. Beach Camp educators leave with friends and connections across the globe, and with leadership experience equal to many years or many jobs in a typical organization.

​​​I'm out of school now, what can the Sunset Bay Wharf do for me?

​​The Sunset Bay Wharf is a fast growing organization with student enrollment increasing by 20% a year. We have new career positions and resume building opportunities available every year for young people with a passion for teaching and empowering the next generation.

For those considering grad school or returning to college, our off season program makes it possible to pursue higher education goals while incurring little or no student debt, and also serves as an incubator for recent grads wanting to try out Seattle or build up their resume with teaching and non-profit experience prior to applying to grad school.
