BEST BETS

Family

May 23, 2002|By Lori Sears

For many kids, summer is all about summer camp. A welcome reprieve from the school year, camp is a fun, physical excursion. If your kid would like to sample the summer-camp experience, Port Discovery's got a new family exhibit that offers all the fun of camp without the nasty bugs and poison ivy.

"Camp Exploramora," running Saturday through Sept. 2, includes craft activities, an athletic field for kicking the soccer ball around and stables where kids can learn about Maryland horseracing and even braid a horse's tail. There's a mess hall where kids can serve a meal, cabins to explore and a nature trail where kids can learn to identify animal tracks. "Campers" can gather around the campfire, sitting on tree stumps and hearing spooky Edgar Allan Poe tales, and more.

"Camp Exploramora," sponsored by the law offices of Shapiro Sher & Guinot, runs Saturday through Sept. 2 at Port Discovery, 35 Market Place. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and noon-5 p.m. Sundays, through Labor Day. July-August, hours will be extended until 8 p.m. on Fridays. $11; $8.50 ages 3-12; free for ages under 3. Call 410-727-8120.
