Kennebec Explorers Day Camp – Launching for 2022!

We are already dreaming about summer here at Maine Maritime Museum. Education staff is hard at work designing new experiences and bringing back old favorites (field trips!) for our longest-running summer program, Kennebec Explorers Day Camp, for rising 2nd-5th graders.

This summer MMM will offer seven sessions of our five-day summer camp that will foster your child’s exploration of earth and ocean sciences through creative hands-on learning. Campers will explore the ecosystem of Merrymeeting Bay and gain a sense of stewardship for this special place through outdoor adventures, boat cruises on the Kennebec River, games, science experiments, crafts, and more! And returning for the 2022 season, field trips to local nature preserves and state parks! Small weekly camper groups, low camper-to-counselor ratios, and experienced educators make for an unforgettable camp experience. Camp is outdoors under an open-air tent and all Maine CDC recommendations will be in place.

Register today! This camp sells out quickly!
