Our School and Group Programs, Environmental Day Camps, and Counselor in Training Program provide endless opportunities for active learners.
Grades K to 5
Kids love our camps! With seven different habitats in Odiorne Point State Park to explore, and live animal and hands-on exhibits in the Center to reinforce learning, campers gain a great understanding and appreciation of the natural world around them.
All camp counselors are skilled educators who know how to excite children about science through hands-on learning fun. Our low camper-to-counselor ratio for each age group ensures a safe, enriching experience for every camper.
Each session is based around a different theme and lessons incorporate the teachable moments presented by nature and campers’ curiosity. Come find out why many of our campers return year after year and form lasting friendships.

Counselor In Training Program
Ages 13 to 17
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program provided a unique opportunity for Seacoast Science Center member teens, ages 13-17, to acquire leadership and informal teaching skills while learning about the marine environment in a camp setting. CIT’s assist our camp counselors in providing a safe, fun, and meaningful educational experience for our campers. Perspective CIT’s are interviewed to ensure that the program is a good fit and are required to participate in training.
Counselors-in-Training must be members of the Seacoast Science Center at the Family Level or higher.
