  • Seacoast Science Center Camp Care offers help for local students

    RYE — The Seacoast Science Center (SSC) is offering a new program designed to help families meet the challenges of returning to school in hybrid or remote learning models. Camp Care, for children in grades K-5, will explore topics in natural sciences while integrating math, engineering, reading, writing, art and music, to add richness and age-appropriate academic rigor to the science content. 

    Mornings are dedicated to lessons in environmental education, featuring nature’s remarkable classroom just outside its doors in Odiorne Point State Park. Afternoons are closely supervised time where students may work on school work, enjoy outdoor exploration, and play games with their peers.

    Tutoring with a licensed elementary school teacher is available on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for an additional fee of $20 per student (limited to 5 students), per day.

    Children are grouped by grade: K-1-2 and 3-4-5, with a maximum of 12 students in each group. Cost is $70 per day for SSC members; $80 non-members. 

    After-care is available from 3:00-5:30 p.m. for $20 per day. 

    SSC has established a track record for putting the safety of its program participants first during its 28 years of operation. Operating in accordance with the State of New Hampshire's Stay at Home 2.0 guidelines, and following additional, rigorous safety protocol and safety guidelines, the Center will remain closed to public visitation on weekdays during the Fall/Winter season while Camp Care is in session.
