Come and join us for a fun-filled Saturday outdoors on Dauphin Island. Discovery Hall Programs is now offering its popular summer camps during the school year, too. On the chosen Saturdays of each month, we are offering an ocean-themed program full of science, activities, and fun.
Each program is approximately six hours long and is focused on a specific ocean theme. For the Spring, campers can choose a Saturday focused on ocean biodiversity, fishes and fisheries, or ocean technology, or participate in all three. While these programs are open to all ages, some of the activities are best enjoyed by younger ocean enthusiasts if they are accompanied by a participating adult.

Registration closes at 4 p.m. the Friday before each event.
We ask that you pre-register here for these programs so we know to expect you, but we also recognize that plans change. If you are interested in participating just the day before, give us a call to make sure there is space available. Please note that the weather on Dauphin Island can be different from that in Mobile or areas farther north: only severe weather conditions result in cancellation. Cancellations due to weather will be posted on our Facebook page. Many of your other questions will likely be answered in the registration form, but feel free to contact us at DHPSummer@disl.org or (251) 861-2141, x 7515 with additional questions.
