Summer Camps

We offer many weeks of summer day camp, to allow kids of every age to explore and experience the shoreline. Our camps fall into two categories, Bay Camp and Fishing Camp, for which you may read the descriptions below.

Families, please read our Bay Camp Parent Letter

Bay Camp 2017


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. Registration opens on February 15th, 2017, and you can register online here.

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.
