Camps & Expeditions

Thanks to everyone for making our 2020 summer possible and memorable in new, safe ways. Stay tuned for plans for 2021!

Exciting adventures on the lake for kids and teens!

Our summer programs are led by highly experienced staff and combine our fleet of watercraft, replica vessels, and teaching facilities on our 3-acre waterfront campus to create an engaging and empowering educational summer adventure for any youth. Programs foster learning, exercise, confidence, and teamwork through interactive fun on the water, in the water, and by the water. Scholarships are available for camps and expeditions.

Virtual Lake Adventure Camps

Week-long Virtual Lake Adventure Camps at the Museum let kids entering Grades 2-12 have an adventure at home and outside. With a different camp each week and options for different age groups, there is something for everyone. From underwater robots to blacksmithing, fishing to boating, or even some 18th century-themed experiential fun, our summer is packed full of adventure.

Teen Expeditions

A once-in-a-lifetime experience for all intrepid teens ages 13-16. Overnight expeditions with Lake Champlain Maritime Museum combine teamwork, kayaking or rowing, lake ecology, culture, and history.

Each expedition sets a course from the Museum to explore Lake Champlain. Groups set out in kayaks or rowing gigs (based on the expedition) to explore the lake by day and camp outside each night. Use the button below to learn more about our 2020 expeditions and apply today:
