About SEACAMP Jr.
Day Camp for Rising 5th & 6th Graders

SEACAMP Junior is a 5 day, day camp program designed to introduce younger students to the ocean and local marine life of Southern California. It is open to students entering 5th and 6th grade in the fall of 2018. Throughout the program our Marine Science Instructors will use our extensive aquarium facilities to teach hands-on labs and workshops. Our labs and workshops encourage students to touch and observe our wide variety of live and preserved specimens and introduce them to the variety of marine life they will encounter during field activities. This program is an excellent way to introduce students to the marine environment, engage students in marine science, and spark the interest of those with little previous exposure.

During snorkeling, there is one lifeguarded staff member with every seven students and staff will have a rescue tube with them. All water activities require students to wear full-length, 7mm wet suits (which makes them buoyant). The only exception is during kayaking and stand up paddle boarding when students will be wearing Coast Guard-approved PFDs (Personal Flotation Device – a ‘life jacket’). In the controlled environment of camp, lab activities will have 2 to 3 staff depending on the activity.
