About SEACAMP Jr.
Day Camp for Rising 5th - 8th Graders

SEACAMP Junior is a 5 day, full 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 through 8th grade in the upcoming fall. Throughout the program our Marine Science Instructors will use our extensive aquarium facilities to teach hands-on labs and workshops. Participants for all Summer Camps are required to be fully vaccinated and up to date for COVID-19 vaccinations prior to start of their session. See additional COVID-19 information here.

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 full day 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.

SEACAMP San Diego Marine Science Instructors possess at least a college degree and are certified Red Cross Lifeguards with First Aid and CPR for the Professional Rescuer – including oxygen administration training and first aid for marine hazards. Additionally, all Instructors have been finger printed with the Department of Justice & FBI and all have Class-C commercial driver’s licenses. SEACAMP San Diego does not retain a nurse on staff, although we do have a paramedic consultant on call. We are within close proximity of emergency care and are in a 9-1-1 service area.

SEACAMP San Diego tuition includes all supervision of students. The amount of supervisory Instructors varies depending on the schedule. During snorkeling, there is one lifeguarded Instructor with every seven students and Instructor 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.

All SEACAMP San Diego’s programs are centrally located in the community within easy reach of full medical facilities, including emergency care. All facilities are easily accessible by car and ambulance in case of emergency, and professional medical care is on call 24 hours a day. Additionally, SEACAMP San Diego Instructors possess at least a college degree and are certified Red Cross Lifeguards with First Aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer and Oxygen Administration training. SEACAMP San Diego does not retain a nurse on staff, although we do have a paramedic consultant on call.

Our registration forms ask parents/guardians to provide information about medical conditions, allergies, prescription and over the counter medications, etc. Student information is confidential and stays with SEACAMP staff at all times. We have added a list of OTC medications that we stock at camp that may be available to your students if necessary, and parents may give permission to make these medications available if necessary.

In regards to prescription medications, SEACAMP staff is not authorized to hold or administer prescription mediation to students – with the exception of emergency medication (i.e. Epi Pen) which staff are able to administer in an emergency situation. Students that need to take prescription medication(s) during camp will be responsible to hold and administer medication(s).

SEACAMP Staff cannot address or help remedy situations they are not made aware of. Students will need to communicate any health problems or concerns. If your child becomes ill or injured while attending SEACAMP San Diego, we will, of course, make sure that parents are kept informed about their child’s situation and progress. Whenever possible, parents/guardians will be included in decisions regarding their child’s care.
