Safety and Security
Project Oceanology is located on the Avery Point Campus of the University of Connecticut. Campus police are available to us and routinely patrol the entire campus to ensure everyone's safety. All our vessels are subject to rigorous standards established by the U.S. Coast Guard. All staff undergo random drug testing, have been finger printed and undergo background checks.

First Aid
Our full time staff are trained in First Aid, CPR and hold lifeguard certificates.

Our research vessels trips and field studies take place rain or shine. For safety reasons, we do not operate our vessels in high winds. We expect participants to be flexible and adaptive as coastal weather can change rather quickly. Weather and tide schedules occasionally present opportunities for unexpected adventures.

Student/Staff Ratio
Our student to instructor ratio varies from program to program. Camp programs are a 1 to 10 ratio and group programs are a 1 to 25 ratio.

Contacting Your Child
If your child is participating in a school program or day camp and you need to contact them for an emergency situation you may call our main office at 860/445-9007. If your child is at OceanCamp, you may fax a message to them at 860/449-8008 or email them at projecto@oceanology.org. For emergency situations after business hours for residential programs, contact our residential supervisor at 860/445-9007 ext. 3020.
