Summer Adventure!

For Toddlers to Teens, the Coolest Camp on Long Island!

Our Adventure Days camp program adds interactive excitement to summer vacation. Children ages 2-14 explore the wonders of the marine environment through age-appropriate learning and activities.

A Tour Boat adventure, close encounters with marine creatures, the chance to catch fish on a deserted island – just some of the fun for children 8 and younger. Older children can collect and identify marine specimens on our Tour Boat, hike the Pine Barrens, climb a rock wall, go canoeing and kayaking, take a Shark Dive and Snorkel Adventure, and more!
