About This Activity

Calling all young habitat heroes! Our campers are invited to join a mission to protect and preserve the ocean's most vital habitats while learning about species that are key to those environments. Through hands-on experiences and water activities, campers will learn how critical these animals are to the world. Explore the beauty of coral reefs, kelp forests, and more, and become an advocate for the keystone species. This camp has water days Tuesday-Friday that include dip netting, snorkeling, and boating. SWIMMING SKILLS REQUIRED Campers will participate in water activities Tuesday through Thursday. These activities include snorkeling, field sampling, and a Sarasota Bay boat excursion. Campers will receive instruction and guidance for all water-based activities. Swimming skills are required, however campers do not need to be advanced swimmers. They must be comfortable getting in the water and be able to doggy paddle. A certified lifeguard will be in the water with camp groups at all times. This camp also includes tours of Mote Aquarium and Marine Mammal Center. Campers may register for a morning AND afternoon session to make a full day of STEM fun at Mote! Full-day campers will bring a nut-free lunch and enjoy a supervised lunch break with fellow campers from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
