Day Camp Permits

We will start accepting Day camp applications beginning Jan 3rd, 2023.  

Day Camp are defined as: Supervised and registerable recreational activities that are open to the public and scheduled during school breaks (based on Seattle Public Schools calendar). They must be held Weekdays (M-F) at reservable Picnic Sites. The camps are then eligible for a 50% fee reduction from the normal picnic pricing.  

Anyone looking to host a day camp in a non-picnic park or during the school year can apply for a Park Use Permit. There are no discounts for these day camps, but they can be operated in most of our 480+ parks.  

If a day camp operator is running a camp for 10 hours or less AND for at least 4 weeks AND has 35 people or fewer, they may qualify for a Commercial Use Permit

Note: We will not be accepting applications for shelters or tables at Gas Works park for the 2023 season. Additionally, due to technical issues Lower Woodland lists Shelter 1, 2 and 5, but these are no longer available. Tables inside and outside of these shelters still are reservable.
