Plankton Pioneers (entering grades K-1st):

Introduces campers to different aspects of

marine science. Each day at our site is themed with hands-on activities, animal touching and a fun craft that is related to the theme of the day. During one camp day, campers are true marine biologists aboard our research vessel and practice animal collecting from the Bay!

Session start dates:

June 11, June 18, July 2*, July 9, August 6

Wetland Explorers (entering grades 2nd-5th):

This camp focuses on the San Francisco Bay estuary’s animals and habitats including marshes, sloughs and mudflats. 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.

Session start dates:

June 25, July 16, July 23, July 30

Ocean Explorers (entering grades 2nd-5th):

Ocean Explorers discuss coastal California 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.

Session start dates:

June 11, June 18, June 25, July 2*, July 9, July 16, July 23, July 30, August 6

Naturalists (returning campers entering grades 4th-5th):

Campers who have previously attended Ocean Explorers or Wetland Explorers & are ready to delve a little deeper will enjoy this fast-paced camp. Campers will learn how to be naturalists and have fun studying marine science research methods in both the wetland and oceanic habitats. Exciting field trips and a trip on our research vessel take students behind the scenes as marine biologists.

Session start dates:

July 2* (overnight option available this week only), July 9, August 6

Underwater Investigators (entering 6th-8th grades):

This year's theme is Marine Exploration – Tools for Researching Marine Animals and Ecosystems.
