Gloucester Summer Camp, via the Gloucester Museum School

As a married dad with four children here in Gloucester, Massachusetts, I know how important it is for many parents to find great Summer activities that will send the kids off in the morning smiling and bring them home each night tanned and enthralled with their experiences during the day, while being assured they are in great and able hands all the time. 

With that in mind I must say something about this GREAT DAY CAMP! I know my kids have all gone FOR years!!!

If you live in the Cape Ann Gloucester, Massachusetts area, or are planning on visiting for the part of the Summer with your children, HEADS UP!! Kid Activity opportunity!!

The Camp is designed for kids from the First Grade right through 13 years of age. This year they will be offering: Junior Sea Camp, Adventure Sea Camp, Sr. Sea Camp, EXPEDITIONS 2012 as well as a CIT program. They are all great and fun.

Its called the Island Camp for a great reason, the Camp is based on a wonderful island along the Annisquam River in Gloucester (which is really not a river but the part of the ocean running along the west side of Cape Ann.)

Every Summer Jeff and Joanne Crawford for the last 20 plus years have run Cape Ann's Museum School day camp. aka "The Island Camp".   Jeff and Joanne along with their staff of young adults, most have been with the camp for the Summer themselves for many years, will provide activities and experiences your child or children will cherish forever. The camp is a licensed 501(c)(3) non profit and has been in operation since 1978.

Activities always include plenty of swimming, rock climbing, boat handling, dory rowing, exploring salt marshes, marine science, trust building exercises. All of the programs are geared in an age appropriate way based on the abilities of the kids and their experiences.

Its a great series of programs, conducted in one of the most beautiful places on the east coast.
