Join MarineQuest on an adventure to discover some of the heavenly creatures that inhabit the sea. Investigate the world of plankton. Discover what kind of organisms different zooplankton grow up to be. Try your hand at scientific illustration as you draw beautiful diatoms, the jewels of the sea. Youíll be dazzled by the tiny star-like twinkling of bioluminescent plankton. Learn about the impacts of ocean acidification on creatures such as Sea Angels. Search for angel wing seashells on local beaches. Study some of your favorite cherubs, baby sea turtles. Learn about their life cycles and how you can become one of their guardian angels.
Field excursions include:
Going to the beach, marsh, fouling station, coquina rocky outcrop, Center for Marine Science, NC Aquarium and more....
Go seining, dip netting and fishing; go snorkeling in shallow sea grass beds; learn microscope skills; get swallowed up by a life size Right Whale!
Once your child is registered in their MarineQuest summer program you will need to visit our Enrollment Completion webpage CLICK to obtain additional information about your childís program, as well as REQUIRED paperwork that you must mail return postmarked within 5 days of your registration date (or if you register your child within 3 weeks of your programís start date you will fax instead of mailing these forms within 5 days of your registration date but no later than the Wednesday prior to your program start date, whichever is first).
To ensure that our camps are of the highest quality, we plan, schedule activities, and hire staff months before summer camp begins. Families typically book their camp months in advance. Therefore, last minute cancellations are particularly difficult for us to fill since most campers have already made other arrangements for the summer. Consequently, we cannot provide refunds if you cancel any time after 2 weeks prior to the start day of your camp session. Any cancellations that take place after registration up to 2 weeks before camp starts will be charged a 25% cancellation fee. If you need to change dates (and space is available in another session during the current summer) there is a $25 processing fee.
No refunds will be given within 2 weeks prior to start date of your camp session.
25% cancellation fee (based on the programís total tuition cost) up to 2 weeks prior to camp start date. $25 processing fee for any changes in dates.
All cancellation requests must be made in writing or by phone with a confirmation e-mail.
