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.
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.
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.
Health and Safety Protocol
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 provide a trusted source of child day care for parents and an educational outlet for children in our community. 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.
Please read our Health & Safety Protocol For Youth Programs Spring/Summer 2021 for a detailed plan of the protocol and procedures followed for all youth programs in consideration of COVID-19. Be aware that there may be updates to our policies to ensure a safe environment as the community health crisis evolves or resolves.
