Founded in 1966, Seacamp, the first program dedicated to the education of youth in marine sciences.  The Marine Science Program is the heart of Seacamp. Young scientists participate in a variety of courses under the guidance
of academically trained marine science instructors, biologists, geologists and oceanographers. Courses may include general marine sciences, marine communities, animal behavior, marine invertebrates, marine botany, marine vertebrates, marine geology and marine aquaria. Advanced studies are offered in reef fish ecology, coral reef ecology, independent studies and underwater field research using scuba. All science activities include studies in both the field snorkeling and the laboratory.

In addition to the fun found under the water, Seacamp’s Aquatics classes provide the opportunity to learn about what goes on at the water’s surface. Sailing classes familiarize campers with the winds, tides and currents. The windsurfing course starts campers on a dry-land simulator; they learn the basic aspects of rigging, tacking,
jibing, rules of the road, board control and more and progress to racing and freestyle techniques. Canoeing and kayaking classes explore the natural resources of the Coupon Bight Aquatic Preserve. Certification in A m e r i c a n R e d C r o s s Lifeguarding is also offered.Seacamp offers several courses in SCUBA diving to qualified participants. SCUBA courses are designed to give the camper the appropriate skills for safely using scuba
as an underwater research tool.

Each session 140-160 campers come to Seacamp, mostly from the US, but also from around the world. There are about 30 international campers each summer from an average of twelve countries. Many Seacamp program graduates have gone on to prominent careers as  environmental educators and marine scientists. To join the Seacamp adventure, visit seacamp.org and complete the apply to Seacamp form and an application will be sent directly to you.  If you want to see what our campers say about us, go to our Facebook page at Seacamp Association Inc.  Questions?  Email us at info@seacamp.org.   We love talking about camp!

Founded in 1966, Seacamp, the first program dedicated to the education of youth in marine sciences.  The Marine Science Program is the heart of Seacamp. Young scientists participate in a variety of courses under the guidance
of academically trained marine science instructors, biologists, geologists and oceanographers. Campers work in teams learning basic ecological principles that are pertinent to both the study of marine science and to the future of our natural re-sources.  Each 7 day program is theme based; 

Science Themes for Each Week
Week 1:Tropical Marine Ecosystems: Florida Keys Ecology
Week 2: Tropical Marine Ecosystems: Animal Behavior

In addition to the fun found under the water, Seacamp’s Aquatics classes provide the opportunity to learn about what goes on at the water’s surface.  The windsurfing experience begins on a dry-land simulator learning the basic aspects of rigging, tacking, jibing, rules of the road, and board control. Windsurfing familiarizes campers with the winds, tides and currents.Kayaking classes explore the natural resources of the Coupon Bight Aquatic Preserve.
Express Yourself! Arts & Crafts activities may include tie-dyeing, nature crafts, jewelry making, and more. Activities are planned to incorporate the needs of all campers, so no one is ever left out. Seacamp’s enthusiastic and gregarious staff members go out of their way to include everyone in the fun.

Campers investigate, through snorkeling,  the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, moving among clear blue waters, coral canyons, sandy and grassy areas, mud flats, and natural tide pools– all teeming with invertebrates, fish and mammals.

Campers use their scuba skills to study the ocean Seacamp offers SCUBA diving to qualified participants who are already certified. SCUBA courses are designed to give the camper the appropriate skills for safely using scuba as an underwater research tool.  The SCUBA program will consist of different types of open water dives involving scientific data collection and marine life studies. It will provide the campers with: development of observational abilities, training in the collection of scientific data, experience in ocean diving, further development and refinement of diving skills. Campers must attend both one-week sessions to participate. Space is
limited to 12 campers on a first come basis.

Each session 70 campers come to Seacamp, mostly from the US, but also from around the world. There are about 30 international campers each summer from an average of twelve countries. Many Seacamp program graduates have gone on to prominent careers as  environmental educators and marine scientists. To join the Seacamp adventure, visit seacamp.org and complete the apply to Seacamp form and an application will be sent directly to you.  If you want to see what our campers say about us, go to our Facebook page at Seacamp Association Inc.  Questions?  Email us at info@seacamp.org.   We love talking about camp!

Inventioneering allows youth to come up with their own inventions, and make them happen! Whether you’re bursting with ideas, or you’re not sure what you’re interested in, we will guide you from idea to plan to making.

 

The potential challenge level listed for this camp is higher than the others, but don’t be intimidated! You will work at your own pace with your own abilities. To make larger ideas come to life, you will band together in teams.

 

Team projects can be anything the group comes up with. Past projects have included remote controlled shoes, an animatronic wolf, a web-controllwed candy dispenser and even a desktop alarm triggered by a pressure plate within a game of Minecraft. Solo projects are also encouraged to explore your individual interests.

 

During this camp stations will be set up in the STEAMLabs makerspace, each one focusing on the skills and technology you needed for the various ongoing projects. You will discover what you have to offer your team, and specialize in those skills and technologies. Or maybe you’ll work on skills that you find the most challenging, broadening your abilities. Regardless of your role on the team, working together will bring you all confidence in yourselves!

 

Here are some of the technologies students will have the opportunity to work with:

  • 3D Design and Printing
  • Minecraft programming
  • Arduino programming
  • Electronics
  • Mechanisms
  • Woodworking

The $500 price point is for those who choose to attend one week only.
