This three-night camp is specially designed for rising 5th-6th grade students (ages 10-12). Campers will experience many of the wonders of the Gulf Coast region, in a fun and unique sleep-away setting. Go trawling aboard the Sea Lab's research vessel the Alabama Discovery, get wet at the beaches and marshes of Dauphin Island, learn first-hand what's in the water, build and fly your very own kite and do some fun group activities too, all with members of our regular staff of marine educators. Stay in the dorms, eat in the cafeteria, make great friends and enjoy evening fun with your counselors.

Students should have financial need, and otherwise be unable to attend without the help of the scholarship.
