Registration is open for our annual Marine and Environmental Science Camp!
This year the summer camp will be held from Monday July 8th to Friday July 12th. The camp runs from 9:00 a.m until 4:00 p.m.There is also an overnight option for older campers; they can arrive as early as Sunday July 7th and leave as late as Saturday July13th.
Each day the campers will be involved in hands-on activities and field trips to help them learn about the many aspects of marine and environmental science. Activities may include: measuring water quality in the Indian River Lagoon, examining shoreline processes and beach erosion, studying the effects of pollution on the marine environment, and seining around seagrass beds to discover their role as a habitat for fish and invertebrates. This year the campers will also be involved in a recycle regatta, where they will make sailboats from recycled material.
Thanks to the generous support of Makaira Resources LLC, we are now able to offer two scholarships for our summer camp.
