Kids & Family

In Newburyport we cherish family and education above all else. This is seen in our “boat-load” of family-friendly events, nature camps and well-regarded schools, that together, help keep each little eye open to life’s most important treasures. Here kids have the opportunity to get up close and personal with aquatic life at the Newburyport Boat and Nature Camp. Take Sailing Lessons with Captain Ed. Visit the animals at Tendercrop Farm. And, well, just be kids.
