Family day trips around Camden in mid August

We will be staying in Camden mid August with my parents and we have 2 boys aged 8 & 10. Looking for some fun things to see and do while we are there. Any suggestions? We would like to do some day trips out of Camden but I'm not sure which direction to go and what is worth seeing.

We have kids that age. Their favorites are the aquarium at Boothbay harbor because of the huge excellent touch tank and Popham beach because of the excellent rocks and tide pools. I would also recommend a lobster boat cruise where the kids get to help bait the traps and haul them in to deal with the catch. We did that in Portland but they have one in Boothbay as well.

I would suggest a half day sail on a Windjammer. There are several options in Camden.

Well, if your boys like art, you could try the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. If you all like old cars, planes, trains, etc...there's the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Owls Head (just south of Rockland).

Walking the breakwater in Rockland harbor is also a fun experience.

In any event, I would definitely explore some of the peninsulas, including the drive down to Port Clyde (St. George peninsula) and the Blue Hill peninsula (including the towns of Blue Hill and the fantastic Castine).
