Send your young adventurers on an exciting Sea Safari where they will discover the "big game" of our local marine environment. They'll hunt for wild animals that survive in our coastal habitats and find out how environmental issues are impacting them - all while learning about the field of vertebrate zoology. Learn how to use tools of observation including binoculars and underwater viewers. At week's end campers will document their safari observations in a photo journal presentation. Don't forget your passport!

Field trips:
Going to the beach, marsh, fouling station, Center for Marine Science and NC Aquarium.

Highlights include:
Learn how to track and identify animals including whales and dolphins; go birding at the marsh; go seining, dip netting and fishing; simulated dissections; hands-on science experiments; enjoy a boat float through the marsh.

Cancellation policy:

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 8 weeks prior to the start day of your camp session and can only provide a 50% refund (based on the program's total tuition cost) if you cancel prior to 8 weeks before your camp starts. If you need to change dates (and space is available in another session during the current summer) there is a $25 processing fee.

Policy States:
No refunds will be given within 8 weeks prior to start date of your camp session.
50% refunds (based on the program's total tuition cost) will be given if you cancel 12-8 weeks prior to camp start date.
25% processing fee will be charged for any cancellations made prior to 12 weeks before start date of camp.
$25 processing fee for any changes in dates.
All cancellation requests must be made in writing or by phone with a confirmation e-mail.
