Campers will be supervised by Ocean Institute staff and engage in educational and age appropriate activities to compliment their regular camp experience. Parents/guardians are highly encouraged to send additional snacks with their camper.

Extended care registration will be available as an add on to your registration for a regular camp session or as a separate online purchase.
