Join us this summer for Sea Turtle Camp! We offer summer camp programs in North Carolina, Hawaii, and Costa Rica, which immerse youth, ages 12 – 17, in the field of marine biology. Explore the Ocean and the unique world of Sea Turtles, through our hands-on marine science summer camps!
Our mission is to inspire and empower youth to become independent, proactive stewards of the environment through exposure to the world of marine biology. North Carolina campers visit The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center to learn first-hand about sea turtle rehabilitation. Campers also participate in fun, hands-on marine science activities throughout their camp session.
During our Open Water & Advanced Open Water SCUBA camps, students dive over North Carolina’s shipwrecks and learn new skills, while earning their SCUBA certification. When you're not diving, you'll try your hand at surfing or stand-up paddleboarding and explore coastal ecosystems!
On our Hawaii Sea Turtle Adventure, teens learn about sea turtles and other marine life, working side-by-side with staff at Sea Life Park Hawaii. When not working with marine life, you'll travel the island of Oahu learning about the local culture and exploring the beautiful local landmarks.
On our Costa Rica Sea Turtle Adventure, campers visit the University of Georgia Monteverde to participate in cultural immersion activities. Then, you'll travel to La Tortuga Feliz to volunteer hands-on with a local sea turtle project. Work alongside other volunteers to patrol the beach for sea turtle nests, man a sea turtle hatchery, and participate in the care and study of recuperating sea turtles.
