Marine Science Summer Camp girl with fish


Sea Safari: Ages 6-7

Must have completed kindergarten and turn 6 by June 1st

Send your young adventurers on an exciting Sea Safari where they will discover the "big game" of our local marine environment. They’ll hunt for wild animals that survive in our coastal habitats and find out how environmental issues are impacting them - all while learning about the field of vertebrate zoology. At week's end they'll document their safari observations in a photojournal presentation. Don't forget your passport!

  • Going to the beach, marsh, fouling station, Center for Marine Science and NC Aquarium.

Highlights include:

  • Learn how to read a map and compass, how to track and identify animals including whales and dolphins; go birding at the marsh; go seining, dip netting and fishing; simple dissections; hands-on science experiments; enjoy a boat float through the marsh
