The Chesapeake Bay is a great place to be a kid -- no matter what age you are!

At ages 4 to 12, you can become a Junior Ranger for the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.

You can play interactive games and take a trip with Captain John Smith or discover the Chesapeake with puzzles, games, and coloring books.

Ages 18 to 25 can apply to the Chesapeake Conservation Corps Program which places young adults with nonprofit or government agencies for one-year terms of service in the Chesapeake Bay region.
