Youth Programs

The Calvert Marine Museum is very family friendly and we offer programs for all ages. Those noted here are public programs for children.

School Holiday Programming

The museum offers public programming during school holidays, Christmas break and Spring break. Highlights of our Christmas programming include the popular lighthouse gingerbread workshop, holiday ornament workshop, and toys of olde. In the spring, we take it outside with the otter breakfast, toy boat building, and our unique fossil egg hunt on the Saturday before Easter.
