Welcome to Camden Parks Programs

The Center for Aquatic Sciences, along with our partners in Camden, is offering fun and educational programs and events specifically designed for Camden residents to get outdoors and discover the natural areas right in your neighborhood. Look for our free programs in local parks around Camden, including: Cramer Hill Waterfront Park, Pyne Poynt Park, Gateway Park, Coopers Poynt Park, and Cramer Hill Nature Preserve.

Kayaking on the Delaware and Cooper Rivers

Our guided kayak programs take place June through October. All programs include paddling and safety basics before getting onto the water. Hear about the history and wildlife of the area as you enjoy a relaxing paddle with spectacular views of Petty’s Island and Philadelphia.

Fishing at Cramer Hill Waterfront Park

This new park has a beautiful fishing plaza and we’re taking advantage of that by offering fishing opportunities for kids and families. Children under 16 are permitted to participate in our programs without a NJ fishing license, with assistance from a parent, teacher, or guardian. A license is required for anyone age 16+ who would like to fish on their own at the plaza.
