Summer Day Camps at CBEC

Inviting all children back to their natural habitat! We want your kids to join us this summer as we embark on some incredible adventures. Whether it is catching a frog, exploring the trails, mucking through the marsh, or putting our toes in the sand, we are going to make some great memories! The summer is a great time to be on the Bay, to do fun, basic outdoor nature things, whether it’s going to look for tadpoles or using the seine nets to figure out who’s living in the Bay.
During summer camp, we will be exploring the Bay, making friends, and enjoying the outdoors- all while learning about the environment through a “hands-on, feet-wet” approach. Campers will connect to the natural world through art, close encounters with live animals, stories, games, nature treks, and outdoor play. While this summer is bound to be different than year’s in the past, the one constant is that CBEC is committed to creating healthier communities by connecting people to nature through adventure-based learning that contributes to the conservation of the Chesapeake Bay.
