Lodging and Food
Lodging at Seabeck is designed to be a shared experience. Sleeping
accommodations are communal, with two or three persons per
room, except for those reserved for couples and a limited number
of single rooms in the Inn. Bath facilities are shared except for the
Spruce building and a few rooms in the Inn. All lodging types are
based on availability and are on a first come, first served basis. Due
to the complexity of the lodging we are no longer able to honor
specific room requests. Bed and bath linens are furnished. There
are no clocks provided in the rooms. Rooms or roommate requests
received before May 13 will be honored in order of receipt and
will be subject to availability.
If you wish to exclude meat or fish from your diet, please specify
Vegetarian. To further exclude dairy, please specify Vegan. Please
specify if you have any other special dietary or housing needs.
Tuition includes lodging, meals, and tuition to the
program. The fee structure includes all meals from dinner on
Wednesday through lunch on Sunday. The type of
lodging you choose will affect the amount to be paid. Day rates
are available; if you plan on purchasing meals at Seabeck, a full
day’s meals must be purchased in advance. Please contact the
registrar for details.
Kids: Families with more than two children
may subtract $15 for each child after the second child. The Youth

Kids ages 3 to 5 will have a coordinator available to assist

the registrar if you are interested in taking part. These youth will
continue to be housed with their parents.
