Due to the Novel Coronavirus/NYS PAUSE circumstances we will not be holding Marine Summer Camps on-site this summer to ensure the safety of both our campers and staff. If you have registered already you will be receiving a refund. We’re sure you are just as disappointed as we are that our camps will not be operating this summer, so in order to help stay connected to our campers we are working hard to create opportunities to bring camp to you! We are excited to announce that we will be making CCE Marine Camp Kits available. These kits will provide an opportunity for campers to still experience some of the activities and experiences we traditionally offer at camp, but in an at-home setting with opportunities for outdoor self-guided field explorations your family can take part in. Kits will include detailed daily schedules and everything needed to keep campers engaged for 3 hours per day for a 5-day camp week, and will also feature an opportunity to virtually interact with your favorite CCE Marine Program Camp Directors! For more information, and to pre-order your kit today please visit: https://www.ccemarinedigitaled.org/education-kits/pre-order-cce-marine-camp-kit
