Jr. Marine Biologist Summer Camp Sessions

Turtle Adventures
(Ages 6* - 13)
Does your child have a love for sea turtles?  Our Turtle Adventures program allows campers a first-hand look into their conservation and ecology.  Participants will embark on a week-long journey into the world of these magnificent ocean creatures.  They will participate in activities such as hospital visits, nesting simulations, demonstrations by real sea turtle researchers, snorkeling excursions, and more.  The camp will encompass not only sea turtles but also their marine environment as well as conservation measures taken to sustain these beloved reptiles.


Explore Florida (Ages 6* - 13)
Would your child rather spend the afternoon outside inspecting different aspects of the natural world than staying in and playing video games?  Our Explore Florida camp will take your child on a week-long expedition that investigates all aspects of our Floridian paradise.  Participants will explore multiple habitats, learning about the animals that call it home.  Activities include birdwatching, scavenger hunts, fossil digs, dissections (older groups), sea turtle nesting activities, and ooey-gooey experiments to take home.

Field Experiences (Ages 14 - 17)
Got a budding scientist on your hands?  Our Field Experiences camp is designed to prepare high school-aged kids for a future in biology or other related sciences.  Campers will spend their days making observations about the local environments as well as experiencing them first hand.  Activities will include snorkeling excursions, seining for fish, lab experiments, dissections, sea turtle nesting surveys and much more.
