Ocean Discovery Camp

The Ocean Discovery Camp offers a unique hands-on approach to marine science and ocean conservation issues. Each day will have a different ocean-related theme and is filled with aquatic fun designed to promote scientific literacy and understanding of the role that healthy oceans play in conservation. Students will learn about the technology and tools used in marine science research and experience the thrill of scientific discovery through hands-on exploration, projects, and crafts. This camp is offered at a reduced fee due to a grant for Marine Sciences education.
