Summertime, and the learning just got easier!

Great news! Scholarship funds are still available for PTMSC’s day camps, so don’t let tight funds put the squeeze on the summer fun! Apply here.

It's summer camp season at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center! Although many of the PTMSC’s summer camps have already sold out, we still have some wonderful openings. Here’s a rundown of two classes that still have availability.

Is it a Barnacle? Is it Plankton? Yes, it’s Marine Biology!
July 15-19, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Ages 10 - 12

Get up close and personal with the incredible creatures of the Salish Sea! Campers sieve through goopy sediments to find sea stars and other mysterious sea critters, articulate a 29-foot gray whale skeleton (think HUGE), and use a microscope to visit an entire world of microorganisms completely invisible to the naked eye.

Just Add Waves: An Adventure on Longboats 
July 23-26, Tuesday – Friday, 9 am - 4 pm
Ages 13-15

Dive into some Salish Sea fun this summer as a junior ecologist! On two different days, hop aboard one of the Northwest Maritime Center’s historic longboats and journey to places only accessible by water to collect scientific data. Learn why marine ecology is vital to the survival of the Salish Sea, and what we can all do to preserve its future. (Note: On Wednesday and Thursday, camp starts at the NWMC.)

For questions about these day camps, please email or call (360) 385-5582 ext. 120.

And remember -- Scholarships are still available to qualified applicants, but don’t delay, as funds are limited! To apply for a scholarship, please fill out this online form.
