At this oceanfront camp in Bar Harbor, Maine, your family can go on tide-pool walks, naturalist-guided ecology hikes in nearby Acadia National Park and nature cruises along the coast. Add whale-watching, wildlife lectures and science fun with the “Bug Man,” and you won’t hear, “I’m bored” for six whole days. Families stay in suites in the college’s residence halls.
In the dining hall, you’ll eat meals made from mainly local, organic ingredients, humanely raised meat and freshly caught Maine seafood. Camp runs July 6–12, July 13–19, July 20–26. $935 per person, children under 16 $480.
