Student Programs

MCBP offers a plethora of activities specific to students throughout the year. During the academic year, student experiences with MCBP typically consist of in-class investigations paired with experiential field trips to local restoration sites. MCBP makes it a goal to provide learner-centered, hands-on activities at these outdoor classrooms through opportunities including site explorations, macroinvertebrate sampling, native plantings, invasive removals, water quality monitoring, and nature journaling. We can cater to students of all ages from preschool to college, so if you are an educator looking to schedule a program with MCBP, please visit our Educator Resources page.

During the summer months, through the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department, MCBP runs three one-week sessions of Estuary Explorers camp. This camp is designed to immerse youth in nature through “walk-through-the-watershed” outdoor investigations as well as field trips to kayak a freshwater creek and explore Assateague Island. Youth entering 5th and 6th grades can register. Click here for the summer 2020 flyer.
