Children’s Programs

Periwinkle Club (ages 4-6)
This summer camp is designed to provide age-appropriate activities and supervision for children of MBL faculty, investigators, administrators, and staff. The program seeks to support children’s emotional, physical, social, and intellectual development in a group atmosphere that encourages a sense of community, fun, and appreciation of the uniqueness of the Woods Hole setting.

The Periwinkle Club has a highly qualified, dedicated, and diverse staff with a multitude of talents. They plan daily activities which include sports & games, arts & crafts, local excursions and science & nature activities. The club complies with the regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, is licensed by the Falmouth Board of Health, and is a member of the Massachusetts Camping Association. Dates and tuition fees are listed on the application (link below).

Falmouth Academy Summer Program (ages 5-12)
For children ages 5 through 12, the MBL has explored a range of camp experiences, and we are pleased to announce Camp!, a full-day program offered by Falmouth Academy as part of their 2016 Summer Program. Camp! will feature five week-long sessions running from June 27 through July 29. This new program replaces the Satellite Club camp, which some of you may be familiar with from past summers. The MBL will no longer offer the Satellite Club option. Visit http://www.falmouthacademy.org/Summer-Programs for information and registration.

**For MBL employees, faculty, and researchers without transportation only**
Falmouth Academy will provide transportation to and from Woods Hole in the mornings and afternoons for a nominal fee. Space is limited. Contact Susan D. Moffat, Falmouth Academy Director of Summer Programs at summerprograms@falmouthacademy.org to sign up.

If you require children’s services for the month of August (or any time during the summer), links to additional children’s programs and camps on Cape Cod are below. Please note the MBL does not endorse or recommend these programs and have listed them as a courtesy. Please contact individual programs directly for information and registration.
