About Our Summer Programs
Herring Gut's marine education and youth development programs don't end when school adjourns. Our summer schedule includes summer camps, events for children and their families, as well as a first work experience for young teens.
Come spend a week with us this summer discovering the different coastal habitats of Maine! Roll up your sleeves and explore the rocky shore, salt marshes, mudflats, and more. Look under rocks for sea stars, dig in the muck for clams, and wade into the water to net small fish. Experience a different habitat every day by visiting incredible field sites for hands-on ocean exploration guided by our experienced and talented staff. Collect what you find to take it back to the lab for closer inspection. But that is not all: activities, experiments, art projects, games, the list goes on!read more
