Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Rising Tide summer camp begins June 19

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Rising Tide program is offering five weeks of summer camp at CBMM teaching students basic boatbuilding skills in a welcoming, relaxed environment. Sessions will be held June 19-23, July 3-7, July 24-28, August 7-11 and August 21-25.

Students in the Rising Tide program learn woodworking and boatbuilding skills, have on-the-water activities, and go on adventures to locations such as Wye Island and Tuckahoe State Park

A full-day, hands-on program for students entering grades six to nine, campers will create, explore, and have fun through Bay focused activities. Each week-long camp includes woodworking and boatbuilding, on-the-water activities, and adventures to locations such as Wye Island and Tuckahoe State Park.

CBMM’s Rising Tide program is made possible through the generous, lead support of the Wallace Genetic Foundation and Seip Family Foundation.
