Proxigean Tides Indicate That The Cape Cod Seashore Camps Have a Reasonable Chance of Making It Through another Season If They are not Removed by Human Intervention.

The good news is that the tides will continue to decrease dramatically throughout the winter to 5.3 feet in February, but they will start rising to 5.9 feet their highest levels of the year in June. If the weather remains calm the camps have a chance of making it through the winter.

The bad news is that the proxigean tides will rise to 5.9 feet in June. These tides will match the height of the tides when the camps were most vulnerable to tidal effects last October. But we can expect the weather to be becoming milder in May.

I hate to make the Seashore’s decision more difficult, but all this means that some of the camps have a pretty good chance of surviving for another season if they are not removed by human intervention.

Read more in “Storm Surge,” and “Sea Level Rise; The Chatham Story.” See UPNE and Schiffer Books tabs at the top of this page.


  1. all of the camps will make it thru this erosion season in fine shape if they are not demolished by the those who know the island and the structures on it the seashores claim that the camps are in imminent danger is bogus.

    • Yup that is what the tides are indicating as well. Good luck out there!
