Children’s Events

The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is dedicated to the seafood industry – and their families!  We offer a number of opportunities for children and teens to swim, play games, watch movies, and participate in group events like arts and crafts and Scavenger Hunts.

There are also two evening dinners planned for kids – offering a combination of good food and great fun!  Pre-registration for these dinners at the Forum Registration Desk as soon as possible is strongly recommended because there is limited seating which sells out quickly.

Friday and Saturday we offer a Kids Fun Lounge and Game Room, swimming at the pool and evening movies.  The kids may also participate in supervised crafts such as Super Foam Kooky Creatures, Tie Dye T-shirts, Lobster Buoy Painting, Face Painting, Sand Castle Lighthouse Craft and Slime Making.

Also, when available, the DMR Maine State Aquarium in Boothbay Harbor provides a supervised educational touch tank for kids.
