Cruise the waters of Long Island Sound as you make new friends, conduct ocean science research, and have fun! Everyday campers will climb aboard our boats, whether our research vessel Envirolab to deploy the trawl net, or our small boats to explore local salt marshes and sandy beaches. Campers will also study and investigate rocky intertidal zones and nearshore marine life. Under the guidance of professional marine scientists, campers will use oceanographic research equipment such as sediment corers, salinity meters, nutrient test kits, dissolved oxygen meters, otter trawls, and seine nets.

Team-building and leadership activities will be woven into daily life as you forge lifelong friendships with your fellow campers and explore Long Island Sound! Each day consists of ample time outdoors working from an outdoor classroom space, the shore and aboard our boats.

Marine Science Research Camp is a unique opportunity for students to participate in authentic science by designing and conducting their own independent research projects. Under the mentorship of professional marine scientists, students will learn how to use a wide range of oceanographic research equipment and techniques aboard boats, on the shore, and in our waterfront marine laboratories. Students and staff in this program become a close-knit community of scientists and forge lifelong connections as they design, conduct, and troubleshoot their experiments, analyze and communicate their results, and live together in our waterfront hostel. At the end of the program, students will present their findings in a poster presentation or symposium to their families, mentors, and peers.
