ArtSea Camp (Tiana Bayside Facility)

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:


Art and Science have more in common than you might think. Both require careful observation and a keen awareness of the world. The benefits of merging art and science are proving successful, as more schools adopt STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) programs. CCE’s ArtSea Programs at Tiana offer an experience like no other. These week-long sessions foster personal creative expression, while immersing students in the marine environment. Led by local artist, Carolyn Munaco, students learn the techniques of painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage using the creatures and seascapes around them as inspiration. A typical day at ArtSea includes one or more art projects, accompanied by hands-on science lessons created by CCE eductors, with daily outdoor habitat exploration and touch-tank time. Students collect found objects and natural specimens, observe wild animals in nature, study the patterns in plant life and insects, and create works of art that are personal and spark a sense of pride. ArtSea offers something for everyone.


With smaller class sizes, Tiana campers will have more individual attention from instructors, more hands on participation, and better communication between instructors & students and between peers. This allows flexibility to adjust activities to suit the unique dynamic and interests of the group!
