Youth Summer Camp Programs at NESS

Registration for programs is now open!

NESS’s summer programs offer a unique combination of on-the-water and in-the-classroom lessons intended to spark curiosity, enhance learning, and encourage students to step out of their comfort zones. Summer programs include courses in sailing, marine science, adventure sports, and powerboating. Classes fill fast so interested families are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible. Financial aid is available to make the ocean accessible to all. Please contact us for more information.

Looking for an overview?

Take a look at our sailing and marine science/adventure sports calendars!

From first time sailors to hardcore racers, we have sailing camp for students ages 6 and up!

What do ROVs, ocean films, paddleboarding, aquaponics, snorkeling, and swimming all have in common? They are just a taste of what we are offering for marine science camp this summer! Our hands-on science programs are a little wacky and a lot of fun!

Calling all surfers, fishing enthusiasts, powerboat drivers, and paddle sport connoisseurs: we have created the ultimate ocean adventure camp experience for you! Whether you are ready for a new sport or looking to hone your skills, we are looking forward to a summer filled with ocean adventures!

We have teamed up with some local organizations (Mystic Aquarium, Project Oceanology, and Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center) to provide a blended camp experience!
