Registration is open for the Ocean Institute’s Ocean Discovery summer camp for children ages 8 to 9.
How do animals survive in the deep sea? Do fish have a sense of smell? Why do some objects float in the ocean, while others sink? Investigate these questions and more as you discover how the ocean works. Assist in collecting samples of local organisms, use microscopes to study plankton, dissect a fish and discover how animals are adapted to live in their environments. Other camp highlights include driving a remotely operated vehicle, a two-hour cruise aboard the R/V Sea Explorer, an exploration of the Dana Point Marine Protected Area and a field trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.
