Chesapeake Critter Camp:
- For ages 8-11 (boarding campers must be at least age 9)
- One week session June 18-24.

Chesapeake Critter Camp is a wonderful opportunity for a younger camper. This one-week experience is an excellent way to see what lives in and around the Rappahannock River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Campers explore by foot, canoe, and by boat. In addition to catching critters, campers make aquariums, do related art projects, build a pirate ship, and explore a local marsh. This camp is an excellent opportunity for young campers to have a fun, hands-on Chesapeake Bay experience.

Wet Muddy and Alive:
- For ages 12-16
- One week session July 1-7.

An in depth, hands on look at the wetlands of Virginia's Middle Peninsula. We will explore swamps, bogs, fresh and salt water marshes. This is not a camp for the shy explorer; the adventurer will be very wet and very muddy. Explorers will walk, crawl, and swim through the most important natural resource in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. While on our journey, we will learn the important functions of wetlands and leave with a better understanding about why they need to be protected.

Waterman Camp:
- For ages 12-16
- One week session July 1-7.

Have you ever wondered where seafood comes from? The Chesapeake Bay is an amazing resource for aquatic animals of historical and economic significance. Crabs, oysters, and a variety of fish have been caught and used for hundreds of years to support the growth of the Mid Atlantic region. This experience will focus on the bounty of the Chesapeake: past, present, and future. Campers will use commercial gear to catch crabs and oysters, learn about present-day restoration to help sustain the commercial industry, and learn how to prepare several seafood dishes and eat their daily catch. Along our journey, we will talk with local watermen, visit seafood houses, and experience the industry first-hand. At the end of the week, you will have the chance to go out on a pound net boat with a commercial fisherman and experience the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay.

Fishing Camp:
- 1 to 4 Weeks, Ages 9-17
- Coed Boarding and Day

In partnership with Virginia Fishing Adventures, learn the basics of fresh and salt water fishing while exploring some of Virginia's most prolific and historic waters. This camp includes fishing for bass, blue gill, spot, croaker, flounder and flathead. See fisheries and professional biologists at work!

While we cannot guarantee you will catch fish, we can share with you some quotes from last summer: "Best Fishing Ever," "I caught the biggest fish," and "That was Awesome!"
