Watershed Ambassadors Summer Camp

Open to students ages 12-17

Monday-Friday, August 1-5, 2016

8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

This camp is an experience within the Manitowoc River watershed. Our goal is to introduce young people to their sense of place within their watershed in order to become caretakers and spokespeople for the health of this precious natural resource.

The week-long camp includes the following activities:

canoeing and kayaking


study of aquatic invasive species, macroinvertebrates, and fish species

tours of community water wastewater and filtration plants

an overnight aboard the USS Cobia submarine

boating along the Lake Michigan shoreline in search of what lies beneath

community service projects to beautify our waterways

interaction with water resource people

The camp is led by Titus Seilheimer, University of Wisconsin Sea Grant fisheries specialist and Wendy Lutzke, director of education at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum.


We are grateful for support from the following:


Camp is limited to 16 youth and will fill quickly. To register your young person or to ask questions please contact Wendy at 920-684-0218 x 115 or wlutzke@wisconsinmaritime.org.
