Hosted at the Auer Marine Education Center in Tierra Verde, our Estuary EDventures summer camp program is a fun-filled, hands-on learning adventure focused on marine ecology. Campers participate in boating trips, snorkeling excursions, species collection, habitat exploration, and exciting marine science labs and activities – the perfect combination of learning and fun. This is an experience that your child will not want to miss! 

Estuary EDventures provides camps for students 6-8, 9-12, and 13-15 years old. To avoid any confusion, our 9-12 age group was formerly known as Discovery Camp, but has since been changed to Osprey Camp. Tampa Bay Watch members enjoy 10% off summer camp registration. To verify membership status or to receive a discount code, please contact 727-867-8166 ext 241. You can become a new member or renew your membership here.
