Summer 2020 with Save The Bay

A new look for camps, activities and more

Summer looks a little different this year, and, since we can’t spend the season together in-person, we’re offering four new ways to enjoy Narragansett Bay and learn from Save The Bay staff this season!

From two new camp programs (Zoom Into Narragansett Bay and Shore to Your Door), to our virtual Exploration Center and Aquarium tours, and our new Narragansett Bay Naturalist Guide, you’ll have everything you need to keep your family entertained and educated this summer!

Keep reading below to learn more. The fun starts this July!

With that in mind, we created this activity book to help guide YOU through all the wonderful things that Narragansett Bay has to offer. Inside the guide, you will find activities, coloring pages, exploration ideas, and fun facts, all centered around our favorite place: Narragansett Bay.

This activity book can be completed individually, as a family, or with friends. The world is your oyster!

*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. Enter the building through the main entrance.
