We are pleased to announce that we are offering programs for 2022!

Marine Educator, Hazel Wodehouse will be leading a hands-on marine science learning experience along with artist, Carolyn Munaco, who will be guiding campers to use their new observations to create inspired works of art.

Weekly activities may include seining for local fish and invertebrates, hiking through the salt marsh and ocean beaches, shell collection and species identification, science experiments, and various art forms, such as nature journaling, painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, and assemblage.

We have kept our size limit to just 9 students per camp to offer a very personalized and student focused experience and will spend most of our time outdoors to ensure the most responsible social distancing.

For more information, please contact Hazel Wodehouseundefined
