Participants in Summer Marine Studies spend 3 weeks doing an in-depth research project investigating a variety of topics involving the Poquonock River. Learn how to operate scientific equipment such as electronic meters and microscopes. Teams of 2 to 4 students will prepare a written and oral presentations.

Students also venture on the Enviro-Lab to Goff Point, Long Island for an overnight camp out. At the end of the 3-week session, parents are invited to an evening potluck celebration and multi-media presentation by the students.


Sample daily schedule:
8:30am morning assembly
9:30 field work on Enviro-Lab, or adjacent beaches and estuaries
12:00 lunch
12:30pm continued field work on boats, beaches or estuaries
4:30 parents pick up

Some member school districts pre-pay for students to attend SMSP. Check with your science teacher to see if tuition could be free.

Please note: We discourage cell phones or other electronic devices during camp.
