Camp Maritime, a top all-water kids' adventure camp located in the heart of Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay, provides an academically sound youth development and leadership program blending nautical activities, science, wellness, nutrition, and fun.
From the private, sustainable floating dock, campers kayak, stand-up paddleboard, fish, sail, motorboat, and more. The fleet consists of sailboats, a Sea Ray Sundancer 350, a pontoon boat with slide and trampoline, kayaks, stand-up boards, windsurfer kits, surfboards, and jet skis. The camp provides wetsuits, helmets, life jackets, and aqua shoes.
The curriculum is based on experiential, student-centered, discovery learning and focuses on math, science, leadership, and seamanship. Taught through concrete, interactive nautical situations in small groups, camp is led by responsible educators, US Coast Guard-licensed captains and seaman, certified lifeguards, and pediatric CPR/first-aid certified trip leaders.
