To our Camp Mummichog family

April 21, 2020

Here at Coastal Rivers we have been attentive to communications from federal and state authorities, the American Camp Association, the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other sources about the spread of COVID-19. With the information available to us, after careful consideration, we have determined that conducting camp activities this summer would place our children and our communities at risk.

And so, to do our part to help keep our communities healthy to the fullest extent possible in this challenging time, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel Camp Mummichog this summer.

If you have already registered for one or more camp sessions, you will receive a full refund in the coming weeks.

And while it’s not the same as seeing all of you in person this summer, we are creating new learning resources on our website including Camp in a Box (scroll down for more info!), Jr. Naturalists at Home and Nature Notes which are posts about a variety of nature topics. This summer we will also be initiating a free once-a-week video conferencing class where you and your kids can follow me in the field as we study nature together via interactive live stream!

I encourage you to check back on our website often. I will also make a point of emailing camp families a few times this summer to make sure you all know of any new resources that become available through Coastal Rivers.

Angela and I are already making plans for an exciting summer together in 2021. You are all very much on our mind, and we wish you good health.

Best wishes and warm regards,
Sarah Gladu, Director of Education and Citizen Science, with
Steven Hufnagel, Executive Director and
Angela DesVeaux, Education Assistant


Nature-adventure summer day camp at Salt Bay Farm – returning in 2021

Here at Camp Mummichog, nature education comes in many forms: hands-on exploration, physical activity, art, music, writing, games, field trips, and more.

Join us as we explore forests, marshes and fields, and unravel some of nature’s many mysteries!

Offered from the third week of June through the third week of August, camp sessions range in duration from three days to two weeks. Each week focuses on a different theme and is geared toward a specific age group. There is also a counselor-in-Training program for youth ages 12 and over.

Coastal Rivers subscribes to the principle of full inclusion, regardless of ability, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race, or sexual orientation.
