Summer Camps on the River @ Christchurch School

Summer Camps on the River offers campers the unique opportunity to get down and dirty in the Chesapeake Bay!! Everyday a new adventure awaits campers!!
The location is the Rappahannock River, 10 nautical miles from the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The school’s ideal location and its own marine science boats provide students with a hands-on opportunity to learn about the Bay.

Chesapeake Critter Camp
A special marine adventure camp catered to our youngest campers. This is a one week look at what lives in and around the Rappahannock River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Campers will explore and discover the wonders of the area by foot and boat catching critters along the way. Campers also spend time making critter crafts, canoeing and creating friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Wet, Muddy and Alive!!
The next step in marine adventure.  Wet, Muddy and Alive is an in-depth, hands-on look at the wetlands of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Campers will get down and dirty; walking, crawling, and swimming through swamps, bogs, fresh and salt water marshes all under the watchful eyes of our highly trained staff. Campers will gain a better understanding of Chesapeake Bay Wetlands, the most important bay resource, and why they need to be protected.

Fishing Camp
An amazing week of fishing adventure offered in partnership with Virginia Fishing Adventures. Learn the basics of fresh and salt water fishing while exploring some of Virginia’s most prolific and historic waters. This camp includes fishing for bass, blue gill, spot, croaker, flounder and flathead. See fisheries and professional biologists at work! In fact the director loves fishing so much that he named his son Fisher!

While we cannot guarantee you will catch fish, we can share with you some quotes from last summer: "Best fishing ever," "I caught the biggest fish," and "That was Awesome!"  But mostly, you’ll catch a lot of fish!

This is a fun week and proper fishing gear is supplied (but you may bring your own).
