Lake Discovery Camp to Provide Fun and Enrichment for Area Youth

This summer the New Hampshire Boat Museum is offering a fun-filled week of camp for children. This hands-on, fun adventure will help children discover how the lakes, rivers, and streams of Wolfeboro connect our past with our future.

Campers will participate in crafts, games, and experiments designed to instill an appreciation for our abundant freshwater resources. Students will create a model birch bark canoe and a magical wish boat. Kids can run off their energy with boating-themed relay games. Science enthusiasts will enjoy discovering plants and animals living in our lakes anAquatic Critters kidsd wetlands.

Highlights will include one special off-site visit for each session. Lower elementary students will visit Back Bay with the Back Bay Skippers to learn how to sail model sailboats. Upper elementary students will ride on the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s wooden boat, Millie B, followed by a tour with the captain of the docked Winni Belle. To conclude our adventure, we will eat a bag lunch onboard the Winnie Belle overlooking the Town Docks.

The cost to attend is $15 per day for members’ children or grandchildren and $18 per day for not-yet-members’ children and grandchildren. To help keep activities age-specific, we divided the camp days as follows:

Session 1: Children entering lower elementary grades K-2, July 21-22 from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM with Tuesday the 22nd being a longer field trip day

Session 2: Children entering upper elementary grades 3-6, July 23-25 from 9:00 AM to Noon with Friday the 25th being a longer field trip day
