Lighthouse Overnights in St. Michaels

Youth groups can now reserve fall dates for the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Lighthouse Overnight Adventures program! Dates include Fridays and Saturdays, September 1st through October 28th, with advanced reservations needed for groups of 12 to 18 children and their chaperones. Under the guidance of a museum educator, adventure participants can travel back in time to explore the life of a late-19th-century lighthouse keeper, all while spending the night in the historic 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, situated on CBMM’s 18-acre campus on the Miles River and St. Michaels Harbor in St. Michaels, Maryland. The program shares the stories of the keepers who lived and worked in Chesapeake lighthouses. From lighthouse engineering to the daily task of maintaining the great lamp, the overnight adventure uses games, costumes, and historic objects to explore the Bay’s lighthouses. The experience can also be used toward earning badges for Brownie, Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts, or just for fun among all groups and their chaperones. For more information visit the attached link.
