MARINE BIOLOGY SUMMER CAMP ACTIVITIES AT CATALINA SEA CAMP

One Week Programs Ages 8-13

Catalina Sea Camp’s one-week marine biology summer camp programs are full of snorkeling, boat trips, hands-on marine science, and the chance to see all kinds of animals in the wild. These events are sure to capture the imagination and make for a one-of-a-kind experience! Much of the excitement of camp comes from the traditional summer camp activities, but, in fact, if you ask campers why they return, they’ll tell you it is the camp community, traditions, social activities, and the friends they’ve made!
