February Vacation Programming At Maritime Gloucester

February Vacation

There’s still time to sign up for February school vacation programs. Our educators have designed sessions that combinecrafts and science for a fun hands-on introduction to the mysterious undersea world. 

Morning sessions are designed for pre-K through 1st graders (with a parent or guardian).  Afternoon drop-off sessions are designed for 2nd through 5th grade students.

Topics range from pre-historic sea creatures to modern fishing technologies, with a look at native plankton species, clever cephalopod adaptive strategies, and the food web.

All programs are $20 each for non-members, $15 for members.  Sign up for all programs in a session and receive a 20% discount (one program for free!).  Visit our website for program details or to register.

Art Haven did an awesome little welcome poster for the DGCD that  we’re hoping Main Street, businesses, orgs, residents will print out and pop in their windows or doors on that day so we’re all decorated.

Roughly from the Chamber to Gorton’s and from City Hall to Maritime Gloucester
