Seafaring Camps are one and two-week adventures for middle school and high school students exploring the marine environment of coastal New England and the Western North Atlantic to learn about the sea's rich diversity of life, history and lore. Through investigations led by the ship's education officer, students observe whales in their natural habitat, collect plankton, visit historic sites and museums, and share sea songs and stories. Students stand watch with the professional crew and learn the time-honored arts of the seafarer - sail handling, steering by compass, knots and splices, and navigation. They discover the life and mystery of the ocean world as only a sailor can, while making fast friends through shared adventure. Twenty-one to twenty-three students sail each session with eight professional crew and an educator, so everyone is fully involved and the instruction is tailored to each camper's skill level. While aboard ship all meals, necessary equipment and education materials are provided. No experience necessary.
