The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth selects academically gifted students from the United States and around the world to participate in three Living Classrooms Foundation summer programs. One group is involved in our Chesapeake Bay Ecology program. These students will spend half their camp experience at Notre Dame College in Baltimore studying the Bay with LCF educators. The other half of the program they will be in the field on our skipjack Sigsbee. They will be meeting with researchers, crabbing with watermen and getting a chance to camp on the shores of the Bay each night. A second group participates in the Lady Maryland Whales and Estuaries program. Students sail up the east coast and examine five estuaries before reaching Stellwagen Bank, off the coast of Massachusetts, where they study the whale population. These students will also spend half their camp experience on a college campus (either in Baltimore, MD or Bristol, RI) working with educators there and half their time living and studying aboard the Lady Maryland.
