We get it. It’s February, and we’re about to tell you about some summer fun. But that’s only because now is the time to register your kids for Sea and Sail Adventure Camp at the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi.
And we don’t think your little skipper will want to miss out on any of the fun!
About Sea and Sail Adventure Camp
Before you register your kids for Sea and Sail Adventure Camp, happening this June, let’s dive into a few details. For starters, camp is for students ages 6 to 12. There are seven week-long sessions coming up.
Campers are divided into two groups by age: 6- to 8-year-olds and 9- to 12-year-olds. The Sea and Sail Adventure Camp starts each day at the museum, 115 1st St., at 8 a.m. and ends at the museum at 4 p.m.
The first session kicks off June 5th-9th. Weekly sessions continue through the final week of camp, which will be June 26th-30th. Parents, please note that the June 19th-23rd camp is for 6- to 8-year-olds only.
What camp looks like
In a nutshell, the Sea and Sail Adventure Camp looks like fun! Campers will get their bearings with all hands on deck for an immersive maritime experience.
Activities include hands-on adventures such as shrimping on a shrimp trawler, crabbing, fishing and more. Field trips include visits to other maritime museums, for example, and stuff kids love to do like bowling and swimming!
As part of camp, students also get to experience sailing firsthand onboard one of the museum’s famous replicas of the Biloxi Schooner. The 9- to 12-year-old group will take a full-day trip to Horn Island, while the 6- to 8-year-olds will head to Deer Island for a half-day adventure.
We know! Now you’re ready to register your kids for Sea and Sail Adventure Camp 2023, and you’re sad you can’t go too. Well, at least the kids will have a blast when you register them here!
