Save the Bay camps to return to Jamestown this summer

The Jamestown Education Foundation will once again offer Save the Bay’s acclaimed marine education summer program in Jamestown.

This year, two distinct camps designed by Save The Bay for different age groups will be offered.

For children entering grades 1 to 4, a weeklong half-day camp will meet at Ft. Getty for crafts, activities and shoreline exploration, and campers will spend time exploring eelgrass and netting marine creatures. Campers will also spend one day aboard M/V Alletta Morris. This halfday camp will run from 9 a.m. to noon, and will be offered July 12-16, and again from August 9-13.

New this year is a camp designed exclusively for kids entering grades 5 to 8. At this full day boat camp, students will spend a week on the water exploring coastal ecology, marine navigation and archaeology, maritime history, scientific collection and more. Campers will work alongside boat captains and environmental educators as they explore Narragansett Bay. This camp is limited to 20 students, and will run August 2 to 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Registration is available now through Save The Bay. Details and registration forms are available at www.savebay.org/camp. For questions about obtaining scholarships through the Jamestown Education Foundation, call Brenda Hawkins at 423-9161.
