School in Nature in session at Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park

AMM School in Nature instructor & kids

annapolis maritime museumAnnapolis Maritime Museum (AMM) is running a full-time School in Nature program at its Park Campus located at Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park. This program is designed to serve as support for students as they work through their virtual learning curriculum and is supplemented with AMM-led enrichment activities that focus on environmental stewardship and maritime education, including lots of nature play, art, and science!  Students love exploring our 12-acre Park before, after, and during breaks from school.

While attending School in Nature, students are able to safely interact with peers in small groups, enjoy time in nature, and get support from experienced educators. Research has shown that exposure to nature and outdoor play can improve academic performance, foster a love of learning, promote health, and create lifelong environmental stewards.

AMM’s School in Nature is available to K-5th grade students Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.  Registration is open for daily, weekly, or multi-week enrollment.
