Calling all budding Marine Biologists! This camp takes marine biology skills to the next level through hands-on activities. Students sail aboard Northwest Maritime Center vessels while doing scientific investigations. Ashore, students participate in intertidal surveys and labs in the aquarium tanks and exhibits. Campers work together as a team while learning to be stewards of the marine environment.

Cancellation policy

In the event that you can’t make it to camp, PTMSC is happy to refund 75% of the full cost of camp, retaining a 25% cancellation fee, provided the cancellation request is made at least 30 days prior to the start of camp. After that date, there are no refunds unless you need to cancel for health reasons, including potential Covid-19 exposure in your household or the camper’s household. In that case, please email camps@ptmsc.org for a full refund minus a 10% admin fee.

Health and safety

The health and safety of your children while attending summer camp is our top priority. Our procedures and protocols for summer camps this year are based on careful review of health and safety guidance from the CDC, Washington State Department of Health, Jefferson County Public Health, and the American Camp Association. We will provide specific procedures and protocols, if needed, as we approach the beginning of summer camps and update you when any changes are advised throughout the summer.
