  • The Aquatic Science Adventure Camp is a science and outdoor education-focused camp for young people ages 9-15. During the week-long or 2-day camps, campers will have the chance to learn through exploration and hands-on activities related to water and the environment. We believe in the power of experiential learning and self-directed discovery. Whether it’s on a bug hunt in the creek, getting dirty in a cave, or reaching the top of the ropes course, all of our activities are designed to stimulate, challenge, and empower our campers and impart a lasting understanding of the world around them.
