Marine Science


Marine Science campers will have hands-on experience with marine life including eco-tours to tide pools, and tours at Sea World and Birch Aquarium. Campers will explore issues ranging from undersea life to physical oceanography where they will discover the forces that create waves, come face-to-face with some of San Diego‘s underwater residents and learn how to protect our fragile marine habitat. Join us for this unique opportunity to learn about the ocean environment.
