About the Event

Join us for fun and games at George's Island!

We will have Animal Orienteering and a Map Treasure Hunt (a "Score-O").

Suitable for children and beginners age 3 and up. Parents or guardians must accompany all children. 

While you're on the island, you may also enjoy a tour of the historic Warren Fort from a national park ranger, a picnic, or a hike. (No swimming is allowed on George's Island due to strong local currents.)

We have free ferry tickets for the first 100 participants to sign up. Choose the outbound ferry tickets you desire.

Groups (such as day camps) are welcome; you may be able to apply for your own free tickets from the free and discounted access program. Please let us know you are coming by signing up with the "Buy your own ferry ticket" option after you click the RSVP button.

This event was made possible in part by the Innovation Islands mini-grant program! The Innovation Islands mini-grant program aims to empower and invest in local groups and organizations, amplifying their impact and presence in the park. From dance to meditation to environmental education--we can't wait to see the wide range of exciting, creative, and innovative events the other grant recipients will bring to the Boston Harbor Islands this summer!
