Celebrating 75 Years

2023 marks the 75th anniversary of Camp Sea Gull, and we're celebrating this milestone throughout the year! 

The highlight of the year will be our 75th Anniversary Weekend October 6 - 8
A committee of former campers, staff members and volunteers is planning a variety of engaging events for the whole family. Join us for a fun-filled weekend of reconnecting with friends, sharing memories, and time together in a place special to so many.

75 by the 75th

Since 1948, campers have gathered on the Neuse River to learn life lessons, make forever friends, and learn to fish, sail and swim. As Camp marks this “diamond anniversary” we are reminded of its lasting value. We want to help future generations enjoy the beauty and magic that so many have experienced here.

By October 2023, we hope to have 75 people include Camp in their will, trust, retirement plan or insurance policy. Would you join us in being one of these anchor partners? Please fill out our Planned Giving Intention form below.
