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. Scholarships are available to a limited number of students (see last year’s application below for more information). Tampa Bay Watch also offers additional summer camps at the Discovery Center located at the St. Pete Pier. Click here to learn more about camps at the Discovery Center.
