The Gloucester Museum School Project Adventure Summer Camp offers a unique experience for all the children involved. The open spaces of Essex County serve as a backdrop for young people to learn to appreciate and understand the natural resources of their community. In addition campers experience adventure games, problem solving, ropes course, rock climbing, hiking, dory rowing and camping as a vehicle to learn and appreciate themselves through non-competitive personal challenge.
The camp staff uses beaches and other natural and historical areas throughout Essex County in order for our campers participate in the unique activities our community has to offer. GMS draws on the estuarine environment behind Wingaersheek beach to involve participants in a variety of different physical challenges and educational activities including: adventure games and problem solving, ropes course, rock climbing, hiking, dory rowing, and camping.
