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.
2020 Summer Camp
CBNERR summer camps have been cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19. We are looking forward to seeing you all next summer. Instead of camps, we will be sharing weekly themed content including lesson plans, crafts, videos, and virtual field trips starting June 15th. These resources can be accessed through the web (www.vims.edu/cbnerr/summer-on-bay) or our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CBNERRV).
