Kids ages 6 & 7 (entering first or second grade) will participate in hands-on investigations of the beach, salt marsh, tide pools, and bay at Fort Getty. Through fun games and outdoor activities, kids will learn about the Bay's ecology and the marine ecosystem. They will go crabbing, add creatures to touch tanks, and generally immerse themselves in the marine environment around them. Camp runs from 1-4 pm.
Kids will also go sailing on CISF's Hobie Waves in groups of 4 or 5 with an instructor. Life jackets will be provided, but kids who have a life jacket are encouraged to bring theirs. Kids will have a safe, fun experience cruising around Dutch Harbor. (An informal swim check may be done before the kids go sailing. The swim check consists of the kids swimming a short distance away from and back to shore with their life jackets on.)
If your child is a budding oceanographer or just likes to spend time outdoors on the Bay, this is the camp for them!
