Families, please read our Bay Camp Parent Letter

Bay Camp 2018


Hey kids! Get up close and personal with the bayshore’s birds, plants, bugs, and other crawly critters. Ask your family to drop you off mornings at the shoreline for five days of salt marsh madness. Meet birds and bugs, search for life in the mud, play games, go on a scientific voyage of discovery, and learn why the Shoreline is such an important place. Fee includes T-shirt and all activities. Registration opens on February 20th, 2018, and you can register online here.
