A week-long learning adventure

October Break Marine Science Camp is a week-long learning adventure, exploring Pacific Coast and San Francisco Bay marine habitats. This program includes an in depth investigation of local marine ecosystems to learn how similar animals from different habitats have unique adaptations to help them survive. Themes include local wetlands, Pacific Coast and oceanic habitats.

Children will spend the day touching live animals, using scientific research equipment, team building, and most importantly being safe but having fun. This program includes one camp day aboard MSI's research vessel.

Campers will need to pack snacks, lunch, and water bottle. 

No extended care available.
