What to Bring

Comfortable, casual clothing for all types of weather. A warm coat, as the evenings can be brisk. A costume, props, and musical instruments for the talent show and Soiree, if you plan on participating. White elephants and non-perishable items for our silent auction. Alarm clock.

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.

Seacbeck LagoonTuition includes lodging, meals, and tuition to the program. The fee structure includes all meals from dinner on Wednesday through lunch on Sunday.
