Ocean Discovery


Ocean Discovery

What adaptations help animals survive in their habitats? What does it take to care for sea creatures? What does the inside of a squid look like? Find out the answers to these questions and more in a summer camp all about the ocean. Help take care of our aquariums by designing an aquarium tool. Dissect a squid to discover adaptations and anatomy. Pilot a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) to search the deep ocean. Explore animal habitats and ecosystems through hands-on science labs, a two-hour whale watch aboard the R/V Sea Explorer, a tidepooling exploration in the Dana Point Marine Protected Area, and a sailing trip aboard the historic Spirit of Dana Point.

Ocean Discovery is a full-day camp for campers age 8-9 years old (Must be 8 by Sept. 1, 2020).
