MarineQuest Offers New Summer Program for Children Ages 4-5

UNCW Youth Programs has a new message on its website for young children and their parents. “Hey small fry, think you’re too little for MarineQuest? Heck no, you’re just right for our big coastal pre-K adventure!”

Sue Kezios, director of UNCW Youth Programs, believes children are never too young to begin exploring our coastal environment and she’s excited about the 2015 launch of the Small Fry summer program for children ages 4-5.

The preschoolers will investigate fish life cycles and see how fish grow and develop.

The half-day program will take youngsters on field excursions to the beach, marsh and lab. They will also visit the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.

Children must be 4 years old by June 1 and pre-kindergarten ready.  For more information, visit http://uncw.edu/marinequest/SmallFry.html.
