Registration is now open for week-long summer camps at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., which begin June 28 and continue through Aug. 20. In age-appropriate Chesapeake-themed sessions for ages 4–15, campers will explore the magic of the Chesapeake Bay’s people, animals, traditions, and environment, with an emphasis on creating a fun, hands-on learning environment that includes on-the-water and environmental activities, stories, games, crafts, and other creative projects.

The Sea Squirts camp takes place Monday through Friday from 9am–noon, while Terrapins’ sessions run from 9am–3pm. Weekly camp themes include Bay Crusaders; Chesapeake Critters; Explore & More; Feathers, Fins, and Furs; Red, White, and Bay; and Shipwrecked.
Summer Workshops, offering children the chance to spend time both in CBMM’s workshop and on the water, will be offered for grades four–six during the weeks of July 5, July 26, and Aug. 16, and for grades six–nine during the week of July 19. Summer Workshops will be held from 9am–3pm, Monday–Friday.
