Northbay Environmental Education Camp

North East, Maryland

Northbay is a unique residential and educational center designed for middle and high school-age students to study the natural environment surrounded by the scenic beauty afforded by Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay area. Located near the headwaters of the Susquehanna River, students live in clusters of environmentally-friendly cabins. There are multiple amenities available to the students, such as various athletic facilities including a gymnasium and aquatics center with a pool, an aquatics lab, an outdoor skills center, a theater, and an environmental education building. Climbing walls on the central buildings and zip lines into the bay complete the site enhancements and facilitate the athletic activity of the camp residents.
