About this camp

The Whale Camp
 

Observe whales, dolphins, seals, and puffins in their natural habitat. Explore an island unlike any other. The Whale Camp is dedicated to providing experiential marine biology programs focused on the ecology of the Bay of Fundy and Grand Manan Island. Our goal is to use hands-on, discovery-oriented activities to increase understanding of marine systems and to have fun doing so!


The Our Kids review of The Whale Camp

 

Some camps just capture the imagination, and this is one of them. Go to New Brunswick to live with like-minded people, learning from experts, and having daily, face-to-face experiences with some of the most majestic, inspiring animals on the planet. Who wouldn’t love that? Amy Lorenz and Cailin Burmaster lead Whale Camp’s educational program, and both bring armloads of academic expertise and insight, as well as a wealth of experience leading field research and educational programs. Lorenz’s master’s research focused on creating opportunities to engage students in science. Burmaster has done extensive fieldwork in marine biology and oceanography. It’s the real deal, from top to bottom. Kids who attend the camp get to experience the world, and whales, and they do that aboard a working research vessel, participating in data collection and analysis. That said, working alongside people who are so engaged in curiosity, science, and dedication can be as inspiring as it is life changing. Yes, there are whales, but camp is about relationships, something that Whale Camp offers in abundance.
