Summer Camp: River Explorers

July 17 - July 21

July 17 – 21
River Explorers

Members $347 | Non Members $385


Calling all waterfront fans! This week is for campers who want to explore all of the Connecticut River’s wildlife, big and small, near and far, through binoculars and microscopes. We will sail the Onrust (a re-creation 17th Century Dutch yacht) and cruise RiverQuest, our 64’ eco-friendly research vessel, to search for river creatures such as eagles, ospreys, plant life, and more! Campers will learn about the importance of native and non-native animals and plants within our ecosystem. We will even play our very own invasive species game.

Camp runs Monday through Friday
9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Questions? Email our camp director, Amy Zupan azupan@ctrivermuseum.org
