Summer BayCamps

Important BayCamp Announcement

Here at Save The Bay, we know very well just how magical a summer on Narragansett Bay can be. However, the safety and health of our campers is, of course, our greatest priority. We have acknowledged the considerable challenges our unique camps pose when it comes to meeting the safety guidelines set forth by Gov. Raimondo, the Rhode Island Department of Health, and the CDC. And so, with sadness, we’re announcing that we will be canceling all of our BayCamps for Summer 2020.

All of us at Save The Bay are heartbroken to be canceling these camps, and we are already missing the campers we won’t be seeing this summer. To those campers: rest assured, we’ll be looking for ways to engage all of you in summertime fun remotely this year, and look forward to, hopefully, seeing you again in 2021.

To all those who have already registered, we will be refunding the credit card used to make the registration payment within 5-10 days.  – Friday, May 15, 2020

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: Narragansett Bay. From sailing and science to critters and crafts, at multiple locations throughout Rhode Island, there’s a camp for every child who loves the outdoors. Select a BayCamp below to learn more and register.

CANCELLATION POLICY: 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 a 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 grade range, Save The Bay reserves the right to move them to the appropriate grade 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.  

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building.
