Summer Bay Camp 2020

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.  Participants must be potty-trained.  Sessions indicate the grade your child will be in August/September.
