  Our "Wonderful Wednesdays" children's programs feature hands-on, station-based activities in an open-house style format.  Plan to stay for an hour or stay for the day!  

  Join us for Exploring our Maritime Past and enjoy a variety of station-based, hands-on nautical activities. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt and discover our Kantzler Maritime Gallery, learn about different types of vessels that have sailed on the lakes and the skills that sailors needed such as using a compass. They will also have the opportunity to experiment with shapes to ‘build’ their own ‘ship’ to use in a rain gutter regatta.  They will also be able to create a take home model of a Tall Ship.  Through games and crafts they will gain a hands-on appreciation for Bay County’s nautical past.
