Summer adventure is calling. End the summer by taking advantage of all the Tuckerton Seaport has to offer with a summer camp for children ages 6 to 9 years old, Monday through Friday, Aug. 20 to 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The cost is $150, but full scholarships are available. These hands-on programs include gardening and outdoor activities, folk art with decoy carvers, basket weavers, blacksmiths, fiber artists and folk musicians, environmental science, live farm and marine animals, arts and crafts plus history and folklife.

To register, visit seaportsummercamp or contact Julie Hain at julieh@tuckertonseaport.org or 609-296-8868.  —P.J.
