Ocean Discovery Camp
Ages 8–9

Summer Camp 9:00am to 4:00pmMonday - Friday

How do animals survive in the deep sea?  Do fish have a sense of smell?  Why do some objects float in the ocean, while others sink?  Investigate these questions and more as you discover how our ocean works. Assist in collecting samples of local organisms, use microscopes to study plankton, dissect a fish, and discover how animals are adapted to live in their environments.

Other camp highlights include driving a remotely operated vehicle, a two-hour cruise aboard the R/V Sea Explorer, an exploration of the Dana Point Marine Protected Area, and a field trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.
