I completed the survey, but I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip. There is nothing that you could have done to make it any better! It was a perfect blend of activities that encouraged the students to learn about the importance of oysters in our environment. Giving the students the opportunity to try out activities of harvesting oysters gave them a historical perspective that will help them to understand how people worked in the past. Plus, the models that gave them the ability to create modern day oyster reefs with the relationship of erosion in the bay ties in with our current science curriculum. The opportunity to touch and identify animals living in the bay gave the students the opportunity to apply methods of scientific inquiry. Thank you so much and I would like to compliment your instructors on delivering such interesting presentations.

Instructors were knowledgeable and clearly accustomed to working with students. They engaged our middle school children and encouraged learning/recall. I can’t say enough about this excellent resource/staff/program in our area! Thank you!

We absolutely loved Club Chesapeake and School’s Out days this year. They were such a great way for our kids to continue to get some social interaction and learning in, while doing virtual school. It also provided a high-quality option for us for childcare during this impossible year! Thank you to everyone.

I want to thank you so much for sending your wonderful Little Skipjacks program into our pre-K classes here at Georgetown East! The kids were engaged the entire time and enjoyed looking at the different creatures. Marco was in our class again this year, he was also in our class 2 years ago, and he did an amazing job with the students! I am looking forward to next year!

We had a great time on our field trip! Our instructors did a wonderful job and were very knowledgeable. The next morning after the trip when I was at morning meeting with the campers I asked them what they learned the day before and the hands flew up! They were excited to talk about everything they knew!

The 6th grade kids loved the oyster dissection! So glad you could come to Meade Middle virtually for the experience!

The party was awesome! Our friends and family all commented on what a cool space the AMM & Park is, how great the facility (party room and classroom, plus the outdoor space) is, how awesome Marco was with the kids and guests…We’d highly recommend AMM to anyone interested in hosting an event.

“My daughter loved this camp-she said it was her favorite one if the summer. The counselors seem wonderful, the activities are fun & it seems well organized! She wants to do more AMM camps next summer.”
