There are currently eleven tent cities in Seattle/King County. These tent cities provide a safe environment for residents. They all require participation in helping to run the camp. Most camps require ID and screen for sex offender status. Be sure to call a camp to find out if they have space available.
For a current list of camps, locations and contact information, go to the Greater Seattle Cares website here: http://greaterseattlecares.org/encampments/location-hosts/
