Oceanography Summer Camps
My high school son is interested in marine biology/ oceanography/ scuba diving. Any experience with summer programs? kt
I went there many years ago as a camper and LOVED it. Campers become certified in SCUBA, and can also learn sailing. The camp offers a great array of marine biology/ecology classes, most of which take place out in the water on and around flat- bottom boats. There is also a lab. Campers study coral reef ecology, marine invertebrates/vertebrates/botany, explore the mangroves, take lifesaving, and there are photography classes (including underwater photgraphy). When I was there, it was a bit rustic (not sure how it is now) and very hot, but the place was beautiful and awe-inspiring. (If you've spent time in the Keys, you'll know what I'm talking about!) It was a rich and amazing experience of a lifetime. eliz
