Bay Camp 2019

Hey kids!  Get up close and personal with the bayshore's birds, plants, bugs, and other crawly critters.  Ask your family to drop you off mornings at the shoreline for five days of salt marsh madness.  Meet birds and bugs, search for life in the mud, play games, go on a scientific voyage of discovery, and learn why the Shoreline is such an important place.  Fee includes T-shirt and all activities.  Participants must be potty-trained.  Sessions indicate the grade your child will be in August/September.

Fishing Camp 2019

Calling all anglers!  Our shoreline is home to many unique fish; come out and join us as we catch (and release) some of them.  Over five days learn about the basics of fishing (knot-tying, casting, landing a catch, etc.).  We will also learn about the diversity of life off our coast through crafts, hands-on exploration, and much more.  Be prepared to get a little muddy.  All fishing equipment provided.  Fee includes T-shirt and all activities.
