The UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium has been providing science day camps every summer since 1993. Our camps allow kids to grow up learning about the Georgia Coast. Our Summer Marine Science Camp (SMSC) sessions emphasize marine science and coastal ecology while nurturing the curiosity and stewardship potential in each child.

We offer informal, team oriented, memorable camp experiences that balance detailed study with exploration. Each SMSC session is tailored to meet the learning stages and styles of kids ages 6-14.

This year we’re offering in-person, small group, half-day Summer Marine Science Camps. Each session will include explorations of the salt marsh, live animal lessons, maritime forest hikes and crabbing from the dock. Information about weekly sessions available for different age groups is provided below.

  • June 14-18, 2021
