MARINE SCIENCE SUMMER CAMPS
As of right now, our summer camps will run as scheduled. We are hopeful that the efforts to mitigate the virus will allow us to continue our summer programming without any changes, delays, or cancellations. We are following the recommendations set forth by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will continue to monitor the situation, assess risks, make informed decisions, and communicate with you all about any changes in the weeks ahead.
Ocean First Institute offers unique summer camps for hands-on ocean adventure, right in the mountains of Colorado! Available for students entering grades 3rd-8th, members can choose from several camps: Girls in in Ocean Science, Ocean Science, Marine Conservation, and Ocean Research & Technology. Camp members will swim through our "kelp forest" in the OF pool, virtually dive through coral reefs in Indonesia, build their own underwater robots or current/wind turbines, meet incredible marine biologists, and so much more! Each camp is run by staff scientists who will share their knowledge of the marine world, while instilling a sense of wonder for the ocean through interactive learning and fun!
