A summary of changes at Project Oceanology in response to the COVID-19 crisis

Updated June 18th



 Limited Opening June 22nd for Summer Camps!

Project Oceanology is working hard to plan a fun and healthy summer!  Our mission for summer 2020 is to get kids outside and away from their devices for a week of fun on the water.  We know that children who spend time outdoors are healthier and stronger, with stronger immune systems, lower stress, and longer attention spans.  We are working closely with our camp physician, the camp community, and the state of CT to ensure a safe and healthy environment at our summer camps.


We're excited to be offering 5 new summer camps this year! These include 3 new day camps and 2 opportunities for summer camp at home. Check out our Summer Camps and Summer Camp FAQ pages for more information.

Facilities will not be open to the public while camps are in session.

Public Programs
Oceanographic and Sunset Cruises on select dates may still be offered in Connecticut’s Phase II reopening - please check for our next update. Weekday Oceanographic and Sunset Cruises are cancelled while camps are in session (June 22 - August 14).

Project O staff is working remote and remains available. You can reach us Monday - Friday 8:30 - 4:30 at 860.445.9007 or email us anytime at

We extend a huge thank you to all the schools, private organizations and the public (our entire client base!) for their great communication and understanding as we navigate through these challenges together. We look forward to continuing our efforts to get everyone out on the water enjoying hands-on marine science real soon!


I just wanted to let you know how excited [my son] was to come home and tell me about the squid dissection. He was fascinated by the process and loved writing with squid ink. He couldn't wait to tell me about Davey Jones' locker and that pirates used to write with squid ink. Thank you so much for offering this program.
