Summer Programs Iinformation
CBNERR and VIMS conduct multi-day programs during the summer for students going into grades 3-high school. 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 private donors. Camps cover themes such as wetlands, environmental stewardship, and general Chesapeake Bay exploration.

Applications for 2020 camps are now closed. You will be notified by April 10th if your student was selected for one of the VIMS camps. For more information about each camp, please see this year's camp flyer or read through the Frequently Asked Questions below.
