Bay Camps

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 may receive full or partial refund if the spot can be filled by another camper. During the camp, children may be interacting with animals and environmental conditions that are not under Save the Bay’s control. As such, we cannot guarantee the abundance or appearance of specific animals. We will, however, do everything possible to maximize our success.
