Inspiring respect and stewardship for the marine environment through experiential learning

Program Description: Marine Science Institute offers a fast-paced, knowledge-packed camp experience. Camp introduces children to the wonders of our amazing marine environment through a variety of fun-filled, hands-on activities, themed crafts, games, songs & stories. Campers ages 5-13 explore different groups of animals and marine habitats throughout the week. We take our campers on field trips around the Bay, including trips aboard our 90-foot research vessel, and spend time at our Redwood City teaching facility with aquariums & classrooms.
