The Field Stationis ideally located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia between the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. Nearby barrier islands are biologically diverse and geologically dynamic. Many of the islands and marshes remain undeveloped and area waters have sustained fishing, crabbing, and oystering for generations.

  • Great camps for all ages. Our daughter, age 9, was identifying all kinds of wildlife after her 3 day camp.
  • Great programs for families and kids. We would definitely come back here. Dorms for families were nice and clean. The staff were super friendly and very knowledgeable.
  • Great place for summer camp and activities for high school and college students, the food isn't great, but the experience is what you're there for!
