August 24th - 28th: Ocean Science & Ecosystem Investigations
Thinking about becoming a marine biologist or oceanographer, or simply want to know more about ocean science? Get an introduction to what an ocean scientist does through highlights of marine research around the globe. Over the week, we will examine ocean ecosystems from the tropics to the poles, from the coastal surface to the deep sea, and will also learn some of the methods used to study these systems. Participants will also have the chance to try their hand at designing their own ocean research project!

If you have a program in mind that you would like to see offered, please let us know! We can work with you to create a personalized program that suits your individual needs and schedules. 

Camp alumni leadership program: We are looking for former/returning campers to help facilitate these courses and mentor course participants. If this interests you, please send us an email with subject line "Camp alumni leadership".
