Summer Programs Information
CBNERR and VIMS conduct multi-day programs during the summer for students going into grades 1-8. These hands-on camps will enable students to learn about the Chesapeake Bay and are tailored to meet the learning stages of each age group. Camps are free, thanks to support from an anonymous private donor and the Ronald West Family Foundation. Camps cover themes such as wetlands, environmental stewardship, and general Chesapeake Bay exploration.
