What a wonderful program! If you're looking for something fun and memorable to share with a grandchild, look no further. This was a great experience for both generations (and very reasonably priced).

This was a fantastic program- educational and fun for both generations. We were all inspired by the energetic, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable and patient staff and enjoyed interaction with a great group of "campers." Peggy, Reston, VA

We have taken four inter-generationals, and all were excellent. This was exceptional, because it has more than adequate staff. In addition, it has 8 high school interns who teach and entertain the grandchildren. This is a week to remember.

I have taken 4 grandchildren in 3 different years to this wonderful opportunity. Each of us enjoyed the many benefits of this program and continue to refer to it many months and years later. It is a true learning experience about so much more than maritime life.

My granddaughter and I had a terrific experience at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station. Excellent staff, activities, accommodations, and food. We learned so much, we're ready for another Road Scholar trip next summer.

My grandson loved this program, and was very sad to leave. Since he was a toddler, he has been fascinated with sea creatures, so I knew this would be perfect for him. His biggest thrill was holding a pufferfish in his hand, and participating in the trawling field trip. One of the best aspects of this program was the supervised play during free time. This facilitated friendship, and was immensely beneficial.The staff was friendly and attentive, and we all learned a lot. The food was plain cooking--wholesome, a lot of choices, and always a vegetarian alternative. The worst part of the program was the required sweeping of the room before leaving, and the room inspection before formal departure. A little degrading, and unnecessary, since I learned that the room would be also be cleaned by staff.

This intergen Marine Science program was excellent. It built lasting memories for my grandson and me and was educational and fun for both of us. I plan to take my other grandchildren on similar trips when they come of age.

It is a whole new way of looking at life in the marshes. It was a great experience for my grandson and me. Highly recommend this program. Mary Hahn

An introduction into coastal marine science with your grandchild. Very well run and organized, with helpful high school interns to assist the staff. Highly recommended for grand parents and their young grandchildren (10-12)

Our grandson came with a solid background in nature and scientific inquiry. The program staff did an excellent job of building on his interests, and provided valuable role models as young scientists.

We had a wonderful "hands on" learning experience with our grandson who lives out west. He know mountains well but was eager to learn about marine life. We had a great shared experience. We also had the early morning opportunity to watch a small rocket launch from the NASA site.
