Our annual Something Fishy Camp is going virtual this summer! While we’re sad we can’t host Camp in person, we’re excited to reach a wider audience!
Every Tuesday afternoon from July 7th to August 4th, the Center in partnership with New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park will host a performer or speaker to lead a digital program over ZOOM. All programs are free! Families interested in participating in any of these programs should register using the provided Brown Paper Tickets link in order to receive the necessary password to join the ZOOM Meeting.
