Marine Science Summer Camps


Marine Science Summer Camps

DEI offers summer camp experiences that immerse campers in scientific investigations of  Great Wass Island’s coastal environment.

Children of every age bring unique abilities and perspective to their camp experience, so DEI summer camp programs evolve as participants get older. The 2020 summers camps are tailored to three age groups:

Students entering grades K – 3: July 21 & 22 (Tues. and Wed.) from 9am-2pm.
Students entering grades 4 – 6: July 13, 14 & 15 from 9am-3pm.
Students entering grades 7 – 12: July 28, 29 & 30 from 9am-3pm.
