6. Aug 14-18, Marine Biology Camp, Ages 8 to 11
Mon, 14 Aug 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, 18 Aug 2017, 3:30 PM PDT
Our popular marine biology science summer day camps introduce your children to the birds and animals of the estuary. We’ll explore the beach, clam beds, eelgrass mudflats, and Hecate Park. Campers will use scopes on the observation tower, beach seines, plankton tows, shovels and buckets to find out who lives here. The region’s only sea creature touch tank and a salmon aquarium share our facility with microscope stations, multimedia presentations, giant maps and an ecology library.
All Camps run from 9 am to 3:30 pm. You may drop off your child between 8:45 am and 9 am. As our camp leaders are busy setting up for the day, we cannot offer early drop off or late pick up. Parents will be charged late fees for not adhering to accepted drop of and pick up times.
All camp participants must to be able to eat, dress and toilet independently. For children with special needs, contact email@example.com to discuss possible accommodations.
