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.
2021 Summer Camp
CBNERR summer camps have been cancelled for 2021 due to Covid-19. The VIMS campus continues to be closed to the public. With the uncertainty in timing for vaccines, and the unknown of when our campus will be open for visitors, the VIMS summer camps for 2021 have been cancelled.
For more information about each camp, please see the 2019 camp flyer or read through the Frequently Asked Questions below.
