Camp Sequoia - Life at Sea

WHEN: Monday, July 07, 2014 to Friday, July 11, 2014 at 9:00AM - 3:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold Mansion

Summer in RI is all about the beach! This week campers will get to spend lots of time doing beach exploration, seine fishing, making a seaweed press, enjoying sprinkler fun, learning about animal habitats, creating seashell arts and crafts, celebrating various creatures of the sea, listening to tales of the high seas, and making sailor’s valentines.

This week will end with a Family Fun Friday performance – Keith Munslow

*Each week at camp, regardless of theme, will include activities such as special guest visits, the vegetable garden program, hikes on the grounds, trips to the frog pond, beach time, sprinkler fun, plenty of time outdoors, and some free play.
