Summer Camp registration is now open and we are proud to celebrate our 10th year at the East Hampton Town Marine Museum.
Children aged 6 through 15 who are interested in marine science, maritime history and environmental studies are welcome at our fun and informative program. Each morning begins with a educational session at the Marine Museum with a focus on science, history and art. The group then walks to Atlantic Beach for lunch and fun in the sun and waves. Each summer, Atlantic Beach has proven to be wonderful location for spotting whales and other marine life feeding and frolicking in the water. While at the beach, the campers also learn water safety and how to navigate the white water. 
The Marine Museum is located at 301 Bluff Roadin Amagansett, and the program runs from 9am – 2pm each day.
