NorthBay’s Environmental & Character Education Programs

NorthBay Accelerated.

NorthBay Accelerated is an exciting and innovative tutoring intervention for Maryland middle school students.

NorthBay Legacy Program.

NorthBay teaches students language arts, math, science and social studies as we challenge students to recognize how their actions affect their futures, their communities and the environment. We have developed a number of programs to accomplish these goals.

Day Trips. Team Building at NorthBay.

Our team building programs are designed to increase communication, collaboration and most importantly trust. We want to help your team realize that their attitudes and actions have a lasting impact on the future of your organization, the team you are a part of, and ultimately each individual’s success. We have three primary team building programs, which are designed to improve your team’s dynamics and provide a fun day outside of the office.

Pre-Trip Planning Adults.

Since the NorthBay experience is designed to make a big impact on children’s lives, we want to give you answers to any and all questions you may have about your child’s experience and the lessons they will learn, so that you can reinforce, and feel confident in, their NorthBay Adventure.
Please browse the information below to find answers to the questions most guests have.

Marine Debris
Join our team in helping to make a difference in the environment!

What is Marine Debris and what does it have to do with me?

Marine debris is essentially garbage in water. Some marine debris comes from commercial fishing activities, but most of it comes from the litter we make on land. Everything we do on land has the potential to end up in the world’s ocean! And our trash, especially our plastic trash, negatively affects fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, sea turtles, whales and dolphins. It has an effect on these animals and more as it travels from our streets and yards in the watershed, through our neighborhood creeks and streams to our large rivers, the Chesapeake Bay and ultimately the ocean!

Here at NorthBay we believe that the solution to the marine debris problem is at the heart of our education program: Personal responsibility. We need to recognize that our actions have either positive or negative consequences and strive for improvement by making positive choices – regardless of the situation.

One of the ways that we have decided to take action on this issue is to work with students from all over the Mid-Atlantic region and spend time removing debris from the environment. We do this each week here at our NorthBay campus, but we challenge any and everyone to do this back home in your own environment!

1) Download our Marine Debris Data Collection form here to record just what it is you find in your community when you plan a day of action back home!

2) To assist with our data collection, please take a few minutes to enter the number of each item that you find in our data collection form under the image bar below. Be sure to fill out the required items at the top of this form.  This helps us track the data better!

3) Lastly – come back every now and again to see just how much of an impact we are having on the environment around NorthBay and your communities by noting the number of pounds we have collected from our communities below.  This growing number reflects that as we all make the small, good choices, that we can indeed make a difference!  We have the power to be!
