Beginning June 19 and continuing through August 11, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. is offering its week-long, half day Sea Squirts Summer Camp, formerly called Kids Club, for 4-9 year-old children. In age-appropriate Chesapeake-themed sessions, campers will explore the magic of the Chesapeake Bay’s people, animals, and environment through creative, hands-on activities, stories, games, and crafts.
CBMM’s summer camps for children 4-6 years of age are offered during the weeks of June 19, July 3, July 17, and July 31; camps for children 7-9 years of age are offered the weeks of June 26, July 10, July 24, and August 7. Camp themes include Chesapeake Critters, Time Travel Adventure, Clever Creations, and Bay Explorers.
Daily camps take place from 9:00 a.m. to noon, with campers meeting at CBMM’s Dorchester House and exploring CBMM’s 18-acre campus and numerous exhibition buildings as part of the program.
Participation is limited, with camps filling fast through pre-registration. The cost for the week-long camp is $125 for CBMM members, or $150 for non-members, with scholarships available. To register, go to bit.ly/CBMMSeaSquirts17, or for more information, visit bit.ly/CBMMsummercamp17.
