Summer Camps! Register now!

At the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, our summer camps allow burgeoning young scientists and adventurers to spend a week exploring beaches, uncovering treasures hidden in our exhibits, playing games, making crafts, and hiking through beautiful Fort Worden State Park. Our science campers come back year after year and many of our past campers return again as camp counselors!

Ready, set, explore! Examine the varied coastal environments of beach, glacial bluff, forest, pond, and meadow. This is the perfect camp for nature-loving kids who want to explore it all! Using observation skills, campers discover how these places support life in the coastal ecosystem. Through partnership with the Northwest Maritime Center we provide a short boating expedition as part of this camp.

Members of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center receive $10 off each registration. If you are not yet a member, we invite you to join today to enjoy this and many other members-only benefits!
