Kennebec Explorers Day Camp
June 25, 2018 - August 24, 2018
Your kids will love this five-day summer camp led by Maine Maritime Museum. Our camp will develop your child's curiosity for nature exploration and all things nautical while becoming a favorite summer activity. Through recreation, hands-on activities and fun field trips, kids will learn and have fun at the same time.
Campers will explore the ecosystem of Merrymeeting Bay, and gain a sense of stewardship for this special place.
Each week has a general interest theme that includes outdoor excursions, field trips to places like Popham Beach, cooperative games, a boat cruise to Merrymeeting Bay, science experiments, craft projects, shipbuilding simulations, kayaking or paddleboarding on the New Meadows River, and much, much more!
Small weekly camper groups, low camper-to-counselor ratios and highly-trained environmental educators make for a quality experience that will establish those wicked-fun summah memories.
For students ages 7-11 years old.
There are eight sessions of camp: June 25-29, July 9-13, July 16-20, July 30-August 3, August 6-10, August 13-17, and August 20-24.
$220 members; $275 nonmembers.
Camp runs from 9am-4pm Monday through Friday, and early drop-off and late pick-up is available (8am-5pm) for an additional $25.
Snacks will be provided and campers should bring lunch and be prepared for indoor and outdoor activities each day.
This program is made possible thanks to support from the Merrymeeting Bay Trust.
