The Experience of a Lifetime

Join Aquarium Teen Program Coordinator Liz Whitlinger and campers with the Harbor Discoveries Schooner Adventure Camp. After a week of preparation, our crew of young explorers boarded a Grand Banks schooner and set sail for a five-day, four-night excursion exploring Massachusetts Bay.

Here are some thoughts from campers about the experience on board the Spirit of Massachusetts:

Working on the schooner has been so much fun! I'm going to miss all of the kids that I met. Even though its only been two weeks it feels like I've known them forever.

My C watch mates and I have become particularly close since we have suffered through shifts together at four in the morning. It has been a great week going to P-town, jumping off the boat, going to Gloucester and now docked by Great Misery Island near Salem.

We've also enjoyed our off shift time hanging out in the galley and getting to know each other.  I'll miss everyone so much when we get off the boat in Boston tomorrow.  This is an experience I will NEVER forget!
