School’s Out Day Camp

Vacation and holiday day camps provide an excellent setting for kids to build confidence and friendships. Our day camp programs include a focus on maritime history, science and art. Ideal for kids, ages 6-12 years, these full day programs provide hands-on experiences and interactive exhibits for students to explore Philadelphia's waterways. All activities take place at Independence Seaport Museum.
