2013 Sea Camp
Now in its 25th consecutive year, Sea Camp, the popular marine science day camp for ages 6-13 will again be held at the Marine Education Center, located at Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL) in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
Campers experience discovery through hands-on activities and live animal encounters in both the classroom and field. All students have the opportunity to crab, fish, seine and sieve. Field trips also take participants into beach and saltmarsh habitats.
Children will participate in a field trip appropriate for their age, such as: exploring Deer Island, a day at Ship Island, kayaking through Gulf Islands National Seashore on Davis Bayou, or a boat tour of the Pascagoula River.
Sea Camp registration requires a $50.00 non-refundable deposit.
The registration deadline is May 10, 2013. The registration deadline has been extended! For questions, please contact the Marine Education Center at 228.818.8833.
