Featuring Chesapeake themed, hands-on activities and a take-home art project, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s (CBMM) ChesAdventures program for children four to nine years old begins on January 14 and continues on Saturday’s through February 25.

The ChesAdventures program offers two hours of fun-filled and creative hands-on games, arts and crafts, and storytelling. Small classes and age-appropriate projects facilitate the learning process and offer kids a special place and opportunity for early engagement in building a love of the Chesapeake Bay and the region.

Dates for the program include January 14, 21, and 28 as well as February 11, 18, and 25. On each of these dates, the four to six year old program runs from 10 to 12 noon, and the seven to nine year old program runs from 1 to 3pm. Pre-registration is required.

Each program is conducted inside and on campus at the museum, and includes activities inspired by the museum’s exhibits and historic vessels. With a detailed listing at www.cbmm.org, each class will focus on a different Chesapeake theme, from history and art, to science and biology—all taught through looking, listening, playing, and creating.

The cost for the ChesAdventures program is $12 per class for museum members and $15 per class for non-members. A special six-session pass is available at $68 for museum members and $80 for non-members. Scholarships are available for qualifying students.
