Sample Schedule

This week-long residential camp is geared toward rising 7th through 9th graders. Campers will have fun exploring areas of Dauphin Island, Mobile Bay, Mississippi Sound, and the northern Gulf of Mexico learning about the animals, habitats, and issues confronting the Alabama coast and the world’s oceans. With the guidance of our experienced marine science educators, the campers will learn about our oceans through a variety of hands-on and in-the-field activities.  Explore Mobile Bay aboard the R/V Alabama Discovery, seine for fish, dissect a shark, see plankton up close, visit Sand Island, and enjoy the island’s famous snow cones! Campers return year after year for this unique experience.

Program Cost: The cost of this program is $550 and includes tuition, room, meals, and lab fees. The $50 registration fee is part of the program cost and is non-refundable. The next payment of $100 is due when the camp release forms are returned. A balance of $400 is due at check-in.
