The goal of our marine science summer program is to offer children (ages 5-12) a hands-on opportunity to learn about and explore our diverse marine habitats. Each program includes observation of live marine animals, a walk to a local beach and a craft or project to bring home.

2019 Summer Program

The 5-day camp gives children ages 5-12 the opportunity to learn about and explore local marine habitats, organisms, and Trinidad history.
