About Marine Biology Camp

This marine biology camp is designed for science-minded high school students who are interested in pursuing studies in marine biology or a related science field. Students spend the week engaged in in-depth, hands-on lessons that give them practical experience and insight into marine science careers. Limited to 12 students. All gear is provided.

This intensive, hands-on program will explore local marine life and our local waters through:

  • Data collection and identification of fish off-shore
  • In-depth focus on crustaceans and echinoderms
  • Water quality testing
  • Scientific ocean research on plastics in the ocean
  • Scientific tide pool research
  • Exploration activities, such as kayaking or snorkeling
  • Field Trip to UNH Marine Lab or Gulf of Maine Boat Trip
