Summer camp programs at the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (AMM) allow children to connect with others and to the Chesapeake Bay. Our award-winning education team fosters a culture of growth and discovery. Both instructor-led and child-driven exploration and activities allow campers to develop their relationship with the natural world and maritime culture as they investigate 12 wooded acres, a secluded cove, nature trails, a marsh habitat, and more!
