Jr. Marine Biologist Summer Camp Sessions

Turtle Adventures (Ages 6-10)
Does your child have a love for all things sea turtle?  Our Turtle Adventures session allows campers a first-hand look into sea turtle’s life cycle from hatching to nesting.  Campers will learn about the hatching process, experience nesting simulations, take a stance against marine debris, adventure on snorkeling excursions, and more.  Turtle Adventures encompasses sea turtles and their marine environment as well as a peek into the daily life of our sea turtle patients.

Sea Turtle Savers (Ages 6-10)
Join us for our all-new camp session dedicated to aspiring sea turtle researchers, veterinarians and biologists! Our Sea Turtle Savers session will give your sea turtle lover an opportunity to be a marine science researcher, veterinarian and marine biologist throughout the week for a hands-on experience they won’t soon forget.  Campers will learn the process of rescue to release as they participate in rescue and rehabilitation simulations, take a behind-the-scenes tour of our sea turtle hospital, go behind the gates of our sea turtle rehabilitation area and spend a day in the life of LMC staff.

Conservation Kids (Ages 6-10)
Ready, set, SAVE! Watch as your child turns from camper to Conservation Kid as they learn the importance of ocean conservation for sea turtles, the ocean and their future. Campers will learn how to responsibly enjoy the outdoors while having fun fishing, canoeing and snorkeling safely for marine life. Each Conservation Kid will receive a Sea Turtle Safety award upon completion of the camp session and leave with tools and resources to implement responsible practices in their own community.

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 more.
