Seaport Summer Camp

Seaport Summer Camp is canceled for the 2020 season.    

Summer's back in session at the award-winning Seaport Summer Camp! Campers ages 6-12 can spend their days visiting the J. Welles Henderson Archives and Library, cruising along the Delaware River with our friends at Patriot Harbor Lines, exploring our Workshop on the Water and Makerspace, and paddling in our fleet of swan boats in Paddle Penn's Landing. With various themes throughout the summer, there's something for every camper!

Have an older child who is interested in spending their summer on the water? Back by popular demand, Teen Camp returns for a two-week program. Designed for ages 13-16, campers learn leadership and team-building skills that can be used on and off the water.
