SEACAMP

Founded in 1966, Seacamp is the first program dedicated to the education of youth in marine sciences. Marine Science Programs Seacamp's tropical marine location in the lower Florida Keys enables it to offer a truly unique marine science program. This program is the heart of Seacamp and makes available to campers and young scientists a variety of coordinated activities under the guidance of academically trained marine science instructors. Campers are able to discover for themselves the fascinating, little-known world beneath the ocean surface and the delicate relationships which unite all marine organisms in endless cycles of life and survival. Students can work at their own level of interest, learning basic ecological principles and concepts that are pertinent to the future of our natural resources as well as the study of marine science. SCUBA Programs Seacamp offers several courses in safe SCUBA diving and Marine Science to qualified campers. The courses are designed to give the diver training in SCUBA techniques so that he/she will be able to safely use SCUBA as a tool for underwater research. Satisfactory completion of our Basic or Master Diver certification course will earn the camper their certification through NAUI. Campers already certified can participate in one of our many marine science/SCUBA courses. Aquatics and Creative Expressions Seacamp teaches the fun and skills of sailing. It's an excellent way for future marine scientists to become familiar with the winds, tides and currents that are of primary concern in oceanography. Seacamp maintains a fleet of Pelican sail boats and twelve Windsurfers. US Sail certification is offered to beginners in sailing. The Red Cross course in lifeguarding including First Aid and CPR is taught at Seacamp. The course is designed to increase the campers' ability to recognize and avoid hazardous water conditions and practices. Seacamp also offers traditional camp activities such as Arts and Crafts, camp newspaper, Music and Photography. Day program available.
