Summer Camp Overview
"Great camp, fantastic staff! I thought the staff did a great job inciting interest in all things ocean. I was especially impressed with the thoughtfulness with which the staff approached discipline when behavioral issues arose with the campers. Thanks for a great week! Well worth the trek from Washington, D.C.!"
