Estuary EDventures’ summer camp program is a fun-filled, hands-on learning adventure focused on marine ecology. Under the guidance of our professional education staff, campers will participate in boating trips, snorkeling excursions through native habitats, and collecting unique species inhabiting the estuary. This is an experience that your child will not want to miss! Scholarships are available to a limited number of students (see application below).
