Summer Camps

Rose Island has been front and center experiencing climate change caused by humans. The location allows it to be a perfect hands-on classroom for studying our impact on the environment and learning about Rhode Island’s history for summer camps.

We welcome summer camps to visit Rose Island for their campers to experience the adventure and discovery of being on a small island in the middle of the mouth of Narragansett Bay’s East Passage, situated in the center of historic Newport Harbor.

 

Conservation Champions

We ask our campers to be Conservation Champions. We have six sessions offered to highlight the effect of climate change on one small island through hands-on experiences:

  • Invasive species
  • Fish ecology (Beach Seine Survey)
  • Bird ecology
  • Plastics
  • Alternative energy usage
  • Our water footprint

Additional Information

There will be a tour of the lighthouse, Fort Hamilton, and a talk on the history of the island.

The Conservation Champions experience is about three-hours, including boat time.

Pricing for the tour excluding transportation:

  • $5.00/student
  • $7.00/adult

We recommend contacting the Jamestown Newport Ferry for a charter. Departures are usually from Fort Adams State Park.

Conanicut Marina: (401) 423-1556
