April Vacation Camp: All About the Ocean
04/17/2017
9am-12pm
Looking for adventure this week? We have five days of vacation camp to spark your curiosity, challenge your senses and, of course, help you meet new friends! The theme of our April vacation camp is All About the Ocean! Learn about oceanography and marine life, create art inspired by ocean animals, and even see our ocean play, The Little Mermaid!

Get a sneak peek behind the scenes and explore before the Museum & Theatre is open to the public. Thrive with a small group. We keep our camp size small so campers get the attention they need and deserve. Designed for ages 5-8.

Register for one day or the whole week! $35/member per day, $40/visitor per day OR $135/member, $160/visitor ($40 savings for the week!). Register online, call (207) 828-1234 ext. 231, or stop by the front desk. Please sign up early! This camp requires three or more registrations to run, and may be cancelled if sufficient registrations are not received by 5pm April 14.

Sea Monster and Mer-folk Monday: Dive under the sea for a day full of imaginative ocean adventures! Hear a story about a fearsome sea monster Cetus, play acting games to become a sea creatures yourselves, bust out your best under-the-sea dance moves, and decorate our own mer-tail!

Ocean Art Tuesday: Together we'll bring the ocean into the art room (or at least some of it!). We'll marbleize paper, create an ocean mural, and make bubble wands!
