Summer Camps


Spend the summer learning science at PTMSC!
This summer PTMSC will be offering 3 different camps for youth:


July 6th-July 10th: Marine Biology Day Camp ages 9-13
Campers will engage in exciting classes, labs and field programs including: sieving through sediments looking for brittle stars, pulling a seine net through eel grass beds to learn about local fish and using microscopes to observe plankton! This day camp that gives youth the opportunity to learn about individual groups of marine plants and animals while learning to connect them to their ecosystem as a whole.

July 19th-July 25th: Marine Biology Residential Camp ages 9-13
In addition to the activities described for day campers, this overnight camp allows youth to explore other marine ecosystems on the Olympic Peninsula! While being immersed in marine themes, hands-on labs and creative projects, campers will enjoy the unique expanded learning environment that only a residential camp can provide! Campers will stay in the dormitories located Fort Worden State Park and will be supervised by their marine instructors.

August 3rd-August 7th: Coastal Explorers Day Camp ages 8-12
This day camp will allow campers to spend the week exploring the varied natural environments from beach and glacial bluffs to the local forest, pond and meadows. Explorers in this camp will assemble skeletons of marine mammals, catch and study bugs, learn about earthquakes, investigate pond life and make connections between fossil animals and their descendants alive today.

We hope you decide to spend the summer learning about marine and coastal science with us!
