he theme of this year’s activities is Happy Birthday Penobscot Marine Museum, in honor of the museum’s 75th anniversary. In addition to a birthday party each week, children will enjoy arts and crafts, games and short hikes. Other highlights include a trip to Castine for boating; a visit to Maine Maritime Academy; and a visit by the Mudmobile, a traveling pottery studio.

Openings are available in session 2 (July 18 through 22, age 5 through 7) and in session 3 (July 25 through 29, age 8 through 11). Waiting-list reservations are being taken for other sessions, from July 11 through the week of Aug. 8.
