Halloween Paddle Race

Margo in costume.

On Halloween paddler, and friend, Margo Pellegrino put on a race to benefit the museum and its programs.
Quite a few people paddled, and a good time was had by all.

Sign in time.
... And they're off.

All Teachers on Deck:Recap

The North Wind. Our Classroom for the day.

Though the day was cold and drizzly, many teachers came out to learn about Matthew Henson, the Delaware Estuary, and Delaware River Ports History. We had a wonderful tour given by Gloucester City Sail, and All Hands on Deck staff Mindy Voss, and Claire Antonucci. Good Day all around.

Susan Mudry speaks to an audience of area school teachers about the history and exploits of Matthew Henson and his relationship to the Camden Shipyard and Maritime Museum.
Teachers and instructors on board the "North Wind" discuss the harbor environment and prepare for on-board science demonstrations.
