Our Program

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE WATER SPORTS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL KIDS


Our program was designed to help campers learn cool new water sports skills, build confidence, take on healthy challenges and develop life long friendships. We offer a strict structured program that was specifically designed to NYC ‘s local waters and weather conditions. Giving campers the best opportunity for safe progressive learning.

Camp is an integral part of child’s growth and will make a difference in the lives of many campers. Our staff of Difference Makers, is dedicated to modeling behaviors of tolerance, cooperation, good sportsmanship, team work, stewardship, spirituality and good positive energy for camp life.

This good positive energy permeates through out camp, and what makes Camp Maritime such a special and wonderful place to call home, not to mention, all the amazing water sports.
