The Schooner Camp is back and running and enrollment is live! Check it out below.
The Schooner Summer Camp, run by the New Haven Land Trust, brings kids to the coastline to explore, learn, grow, get their feet wet out on the water, and above all else have fun! The camp offers a range of activities designed to appeal to young children, ages 6-12 years old. Schooner Camp offers both a land based Shore Program and a Sailing Program in which campers engage in science based learning through adventure, exploration, crafts, songs, and games.
