What makes the Marine Science Camp staff the best? They simply LOVE what they do! Working at Marine Science Camp isn’t just a summer job for them - it’s an opportunity to share their passion for the ocean and the outdoors with others. These environmental educators come from all over the U.S. and they are special - they thrive in the outdoors, connect kids to the wonders of nature, and wholeheartedly believe that every person can have a positive impact on the environment.
When they aren’t working, staff are oftentimes out at the tidepools, SCUBA diving, doing beach cleanups, hiking along the coast and living the adventures we encourage campers to experience. Their passion, support and skill inspire campers of all ages to embrace the natural world and their place in it.
Marine Science Camp is proud to have a team of 18 staff - 9 Instructors and 9 Counselors - who become family each summer and genuinely love their work. Check out what they have said about their time as a Marine Science Camp staff member:

“Being an instructor this summer was awesome. My favorite part about this job was being able to be outside with the kids, showing them the things they wonder about and answering their questions about the ocean with hands on demonstrations and examples in nature. That is not something that happens often!” - 2019 Marine Science Camp Instructor
