Summer Camp: Sailor Life & Pirates

July 24 - July 28

July 24 – 28
Sailor Life & Pirates

Members $347 | Non Members $385


A pirate’s life is for us! Have you ever wondered what pirates were really like? Have you ever wondered about the Onrust, and why it looks so much like a pirate ship? This week, we will learn about real pirates– what they did, looked like, and where they traveled. We will dress in pirate garb as we learn about the boats they sailed, the flags they flew, and how they navigated. We will also have the opportunity to practice shipbuilding this week.

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

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

Want to hold your camper’s spot? We can take a deposit for you to do just that!

Your $100 deposit will hold your place in this week’s camp and give you the ability to pay the remaining balance at a later date. Email lbdionne@ctrivermuseum.org to start this process! Keep in mind this deposit is non-refundable but will go toward your camp balance.
