Marine Science Summer Camps


Marine Science Summer Camps

Your child will always remember their summer camp experience at DEI, exploring the natural environment of Great Wass Island, collecting specimens from our tide pools, and learning how to care for the marine environment.  Each day brings an opportunity to discover something new at the rocky shore.

Summer camp is BACK this year and will take place the first week of August!

Monday-Wednesday (8/1-8/3) sessions will be for campers going into grade 5 and above and will run from 9am-3pm. Campers will work on a research project, practice the steps of the scientific method, and learn and apply new science skills.
Thursday & Friday (8/4-8/5) sessions will be for campers going into Kindergarten through grade 4 and will run from 9am-1:30pm. Campers will participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor crafts, activities, and lessons.
To sign up, please complete our 2022 Marine Science Camp Application. You will need to fill out a separate form for each child who would like to attend. Please note that this year we will be limiting the number of participants to ensure that we have an adequate staff-child ratio. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. You will be notified about the status of your application.
The cost for the 8/1-8/3 camp session for children in grades 5 and above is $100 per child. The cost for the 8/4-8/5 camp session for children in grades K-4 is $75 per child. These prices include camp t-shirts and snacks.
