Saltwater Classroom Tidal Adventure
Saltwater Classroom Tidal Adventure (Rising Grades 4–7)
Location: Waynflete School (360 Spring Street)
8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Saltwater Classroom campers will spend mornings by the water’s edge with sleeves rolled up and hands in the tidal pools. Ocean science and marine conservation come to life through field missions to tidal areas for hands-on exploration, group games and projects. Come explore Maine’s saltwater ‘classrooms’ with Lexi Doudera and her knowledgeable team of scientists, marine biologists and adventurers who love teaching about the ocean and its creatures. After lunch, and some free time to relax, Saltwater campers will regroup to explore how we will present a message to the community through art about what we are learning. Will the group choose to create a sprawling hanging mobile?… a sculpture of found, or made, objects?… personal journals of sketches, paintings, ideas? Together, we will identify our message and our artistic goal and accomplish our creative mission throughout the week.
$395 – We have increased our program costs an additional $25 this summer to address pandemic-related expenses.
July 12–July 16
“My daughter flew out of the car each morning to get started with her day. And each afternoon she talked nonstop on the way home about her fantastic camp experience. She’s already planning an entire summer at Waynflete next year!”
