Barnegat Bay Coastal Camp

Barnegat Bay Coastal Camp

Maris Stella in partnership with the American Littoral Society offered a one week, full day Barnegat Bay Coast Camp from July 24-28, 2017.  This year marked the seventh (7th) year of the camp.  

The camp is open to girls and boys entering Grades 5 to 8, and sponsored by the American Littoral Society and the Sisters of Charity.  Nine students attended the day camp this year and engaged in a variety of activities. 

The camp consists of a week of educational information and fun that includes seining, marine life identification, fishing, crabbing, shelling, plankton discovery, coastal botany, and understanding nature through art.  This program is a hands-on, feet –wet program which engages all the students. 

Among the activities is learning about the Bayscape garden of Coastal native plants which already exists on the property and was a joint venture of the Littoral Society and the Sisters of Charity at Maris Stella

For over 40 years the American Littoral Society has been a leading voice for coastal conservation, and has empowered people to care for the coast through advocacy, education and conservation.   

The Sisters of Charity believe that educating students and their families will motivate them to make changes in their behaviors, and cultivate an attitude of respect and stewardship for the environment and that we are all interconnected.
