Support Seattle youth

Support our 10 year commitment to youth leadership development in the Pacific Northwest.

With your generous help, we hope to raise $75,000 to fund our Seattle training center, climbing, rafting and other adventure equipment, and our scholarship fund so every interested youth can participate, regardless of their ability to pay.

Dinner Auction program

Doors open at 6 pm with happy hour (no host bar and appetizers) and the silent auctions.

During the Salmon/Chicken/Veggie buffet dinner, CLC youth will share their stories and auctioneer Matt Lorch will preside over the live auction, which includes sea kayaking, rafting and glamping trips.

This year's live items

3 hours of sailing on lake washington

Enjoy an afternoon of sailing on South Lake Washington. Take the helm and trim the sails or take it easy and let the Renton Sailing Center's skipper and crew handle the details!

gogo camper two-night getaway

Enjoy a weekend in the Pacific Northwest with a two-night rental of a stylish tow-behind camper built for cozy sleeping for up to four. You won't be going hungry - you'll also get a $200 gift certificate for PCC Community Markets so you can stock your kitchen with your favorite camping meals. 

Private Ski lesson and Stevens pass overnight

One private ski lesson with avid skier and veteran ski instructor Beth Tesh, along with two Stevens Pass ski tickets for the 2017-2018 season and a one-night reservation at the Historic Cascadia Inn in Skykomish.

Raft the skagit or sauk river

Choose your own adventure for a day! The Skagit River is the gateway to the North Cascades, featuring beautiful forests and mountain peaks; it is perfect for thrill seekers of any age with one class III rapid. The Sauk River is more technical with both class III and IV rapids. As always, we provide the gear and an all-you-can-eat lunch - you bring your friends and family! Which adventure will you choose?

romantic mountaintop dinner for two

Choose your apex and we'll provide the gourmet picnic dinner, beverages, and live guitar serenade (not from Gabe!) from local-now-UChicago-student Clay Snell. Your mountaintop could be anywhere from the top of Mt. Pilchuck or Oyster Dome to Gas Works Park or Golden Gardens beach - so many options for the perfect night with your special someone! (Just keep your mountaintop within driving distance of Seattle)

An evening with Gabe Taylor

Weddings, birthday parties, family barbecues... Do you have an event coming up that needs some background music? Gabe Taylor, student of guitar at Western Washington University, will play for four hours at a venue of your choosing - as long as it is in driving distance of Bellingham or Seattle.

4 x 4 work party

Four CLC youth members will work for you for 4 hours each - totaling 16 working hours. They will come to you and work in your garden weeding, power washing, shoveling, trimming, etc.

Lake Union Cruise

Pick a summer evening, gather a few friends, and come aboard to cruise around Lake Union while you sip and sight-see. You will be aboard a 20' boat with no cabin, meaning it will be a warm, dry afternoon giving you a glorious sunset. The boat can comfortably hold six people - start thinking about who you'll bring!

Two nights of glamping for two

It's that time of year - you deserve to glamp with the one you love. More-than-gourmet dinners, breakfasts, cocktail hour, plus a fabulous campsite along Icicle Creek near Leavenworth are all included. Explore almost-Bavaria during the day or join the CLC crew for a day of rock climbing or whitewater rafting.

Lake Nahwatzel Cabin for six

This charming cabin on the Olympic Peninsula sleeps six and is on one of the warmest lakes in Western Washington, due to the presence of naturally occurring hot springs. The lake is known for excellent bass fishing in the summer and, yes, rowboats and canoes are available. 

three days of guided sea kayaking in the san juans for six

Sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands has been described as one of the 10 best summer trips in the world by National Geographic Magazine. Choose from a selection of itineraries and we'll provide the gear, experienced CLC paddle guides, and (of course) delicious meals! Yes, cute seal sightings are very common.

Four day Deschutes River whitewater trip for two

Enjoy this 52-mile float down Oregon's Deschutes River as we provide all rafting and camping gear, scrumptious meals, and entertaining paddle guides. Paddling alongside you will be an astronomer and a Stanford geologist, giving you insights beyond the stretch of the river. Wow!

One day of fishing out of westport, wa for 2-3 people

Dive right in! You and your guest(s) will head out from the Westport Marina into the Pacific Ocean where your guide will help you to hook your limit of salmon, cod, rockfish, or possibly some of each depending on the season.

Three night stay at harstine island beach house

Spend three beautiful nights in a beach house directly on the shores of Harstine Island in the Puget Sound. With a simple 2-hour drive from Seattle and no ferry involved, this getaway is straightforward and good for the soul. The cabin sleeps six - enough for a cribbage tournament! 

2017 eclipse photo

During the full solar eclipse last year, photographer Nancy Gleason was on the banks of the  Deschutes River in Oregon, capturing the event in its entirety. This photo is of the eclipse in all of its phases through totality and beyond. Printed on aluminum, the eclipse is captured in exquisite detail - the perfect summary of a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
