Ready for adventure? Let's hit the road... Destination: Fun!

Each weekly camp will have a different theme, and the Teens & Tweens will take daily trips around the Seattle area and return to Samena for open swim time. 

Vanapalooza runs Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 4:00pm, with extended care available starting at 7:00am or until 6:15pm.

Please read the registration information & cancellation policies before enrolling.

  • You can register online or in-person at our Front Desk.
  • Make sure to bring back the Medical Information Packet before camp starts! This packet can be downloaded during the online registration process, by clicking here, or pick up a paper copy at the Front Desk.
  • The first page of the packet has a lot of great information about our staff, what to bring, and procedures - make sure you read it!
  • When you register, you can put down $50 non-refundable deposits for each week you want to attend. The balance will be due two weeks before each camp starts. We will send out email reminders & then our Front Desk will call to remind you as well.
  • If you signed up early, but then your plans changed & you end up needing to change weeks - it's okay! You can switch weeks within the same camp all the way up until Sunday, May 28th. After that time, all deposits are non-transferable and non-refundable. 
  • You can cancel up to 14 days before the camp starts, but the deposit is still non-refundable. You can receive a credit for the balance. After 14 days before the camp, there are no cancellations. 
  • Please see this Frequently Asked Questions for help or call our Front Desk at 425-746-1160.

Registration will begin in February!
