This camp focuses on the San Francisco Bay Estuary. Campers will discover the science and creatures of their own backyards through hands-on activities and interactions with live animals. Campers journey to beautiful habitats around the Bay on field trips and a voyage aboard our ship, where they will take part in science in action. One week includes four days at MSI and one day aboard our research vessel.

Ocean Explorers Camp focuses on the Pacific coast and the world’s ocean. Hands-on activities put campers in contact with live animals and science in action. Field trips to the coast and aboard our research vessel allow them to investigate ocean habitats. One week includes four days at MSI and one day aboard our research vessel.

Campers who have previously attended Ocean Explorers or Wetland Explorers and are ready to dive a little deeper will enjoy this fast-paced camp. Campers will learn how to be naturalists and have fun studying form and function of marine organisms. One week includes four days at MSI and one day aboard our research vessel.
