Abbe Museum Summer Camp

New in 2018, we are excited to announce the Abbe's first day camp experience for children ages 7-12. The Abbe Museum Summer Camp is a children's day camp in Bar Harbor, where highly-experienced museum staff oversees summertime adventures full of outdoor activities and educational opportunities. This is an interactive and thematic program for campers to experience Wabanaki history and culture first hand, with other activities mixed in to keep children active and engaged. We look forward to seeing you this summer! 

The Camp runs from August 20-24, 2018. All applications are due May 15, 2018. Space is limited.
