Help us put kids face to face with ocean wildlife!


Marine Science Institute offers a fast-paced, knowledge-packed camp experience. Camp introduces children to the wonders of our amazing marine environment through a variety of fun-filled, hands-on activities, themed crafts, games, songs & stories. Campers, ages 5-13, explore different groups of animals and marine habitats through out the week. We take our campers on field trips around the Bay, including trips aboard our 90-foot research vessel, and spend time at our teaching facility with aquariums & classrooms inRedwood City. Volunteers Assist Marine Camp Instructors and Counselors in the many facets of running a successful program. This includes but is not limited to: setting up and breaking down stations, helping with check in and check out, performing animal or water changes, participating in arts and crafts as well as clean up and re-stocking of supplies, participating in (and possibly leading) songs and games, and general classroom management. Marine camp is a fun and exciting opportunity for volunteers to enjoy learning and teaching marine science. Volunteers participate in all of the camp activities and field trips, while being a friend and role model for campers.
