Environmental Day Camps

Kids love our camps! With seven different habitats in Odiorne Point State Park to explore, and live animal and hands-on exhibits in the Center to reinforce learning, campers gain a great understanding and appreciation of the natural world around them. Camps run during regional school vacations and all summer long.

Our Counselors

All camp counselors are skilled educators who know how to excite children about science through hands-on learning fun. Our low camper-to-counselor ratio for each age group ensures a safe, enriching experience for every camper.

Our Campers

Children are grouped by grade and Trekkers (ages 4 to 5) have their own classroom. Come find out why many of our campers return year after year and form lasting friendships.

 

New Protocol for Summer 2020

Seacoast Science Center believes that the safety of its visitors, program participants, and staff and volunteers is of paramount importance. Over 28 years, SSC has established a track record for putting the safety of its program participants first. We also believe that, in accordance with guidelines of the State of New Hampshire’s Stay at Home 2.0, it is important for SSC to operate our Seaside Safari summer environmental day camp so that we may provide a trusted source of child day care for parents returning to work and a summertime educational outlet for the children of the Seacoast. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have expanded our day camp health and safety protocols while putting in place additional preventative measures for infectious disease control for the 2020 summer season. 

Please read our Protocol for Environmental Day Camp Summer 2020 for a detailed plan of of the protocol and procedures we will follow for all camp sessions this summer in consideration of Covid-19 concerns. 

To reach the Camp Director while camp is in session, please call 603-812-9425.
