The Bay is our campground

Narragansett Bay is what sets our summer camps apart from all the rest. In fact, it's our campground. During our week-long, full- and half-day camps, children from kindergarten through high school enjoy hands-on exploration of Rhode Island's greatest natural resource. From sailing and science to critters and crafts, plus multiple locations throughout Rhode Island, there's a camp for every child who loves the outdoors. 

Because Save the Bay’s BayCamps are so popular, the entire cost of the program is required to confirm your reservation. Cancellations with at least four weeks notice will receive full refund. Cancellation with less than four weeks notice will not receive a refund. 

Please note, that if you register your child for a camp that is outside of our required age range, Save The Bay reserves the right to move them to the appropriate aged camp at any time if space is available. If space is not available in the appropriate camp, your child will not be able to attend camp during your preferred dates and you forfeit your payment.
