Looking for a fun and exciting way for your child to spend their time during spring break? This is their chance to join our MarineQuest staff at the UNCW Center for Marine Science for a week of Ocean Critters Exploration! Our quality programming is fun and academically enriching, giving participants an opportunity to apply what they've learned in school in authentic, meaningful situations. Our spring break camp activities include laboratory experiments, field trips, exploration, games, and more. Your child will be captivated as the MarineQuest staff transforms them into a junior scientist on a mission for sea life exploration! Whether we are flying high with the seabirds, diving deep with dolphins, tracking turtles, or finding fish…this week will surely be a splash!
