Save The Bay summer camp

The Jamestown Education Foundation, together with the town recreation department, will bring Save The Bay's acclaimed marine education program back to Jamestown this summer.

Since this program has been such a great success the past two years, JEF will expand its offer of a summer of exploration to children in grades 1 through 8, during July and August. The camp will be based at Fort Getty, with side trips to Mackerel Cove and Beavertail State Park. Older campers will have a chance to snorkel through eelgrass beds.

The First Session will meet on four Mondays in July - July 10, 17, 24 and 31- rain or shine. The Second Session will run in August on four Tuesdays - August 1, 8, 15, and 22 - rain or shine. Group 1, for kids entering Grades 1 through 4, will meet from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Group 2, for kids entering Grades 5 through 9, will meet from 1 to 4 p.m.

The tuition for the program has been reduced to $50 per session this summer. JEF will provide scholarships for those in need. Registration is open now through the recreation department, 4237260, with sign-up forms available at the Community Center, Planning Office, and Emily Chamberlain's office at 77 Narragansett Ave., or online at http://www.jamestownri.net/rec/r ec.html.

Participation is limited to 25 in each group, so don't delay!
