The 2020 Underwater Investigators camp theme is Adaptation. Through the course of the week, campers will explore the physical and behavioral adaptations of marine animals and their adaptations to changing ocean conditions. Hands-on activities include live animal investigations, science experiments, dissections and much more. Through direct exposure and investigations, campers will expand their appreciation of marine habitats, explore human activities and their impact on the environment, and dive into solutions for local and global conservation issues.


Their week-long information gathering by land, boat and canoe will culminate in an activity aboard the R/V Robert G. Brownlee in which campers will work in groups to create and present their own conservation campaign. This action-packed camp includes two days of hands-on activities at MSI, one day canoeing through the local slough, and two days aboard our research vessel with a fun filled sleep-over on the boat at our overnight location.
