SAMC Marine Biology 101

Marine Biology 101

This week our Sea Adventurers dive right into the basics of being a marine biologist by exploring all of CCE Marine Program’s current projects. Through unique, hands-on and educational-based experiences your mini marine biologist will meet and work closely with CCE scientists to become the very best environmental steward they can be! Campers will investigate local habitats, study the biology of local species, help restore eelgrass meadows, work in an oyster garden and much more as they immerse themselves daily in lessons, labs, and citizen science projects!

This session features our special guest speaker, TBD

This session includes a field trip to the Riverhead Foundation’s Rescue Center! On Thursday campers will get the special opportunity to experience a behind the scenes tour of the Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Center to get a first-hand look into what the Riverhead Foundation does to protect threatened and endangered marine mammals and sea turtles that inhabit our waters.

Shark Week

Our most popular themed week! Join us for a week-long investigation of the ocean’s most feared predators – sharks! Campers delve into the fascinating world of sharks while busting common shark myths and gaining a better understanding and appreciation for these top predators. Our marine instructors will guide your young scientist through activities focused on shark anatomy and biology, species identification, conservation efforts and more. Each year our Shark Week lessons are updated with current shark related hot topics and headlines. Our older campers will be given the opportunity at the end of the week to participate in a shark dissection guided by our educators (must be at least 9 years old to participate in the dissection).

This session features our special guest speaker, CCE Scientist Scott Curatolo-Wagemann ! Campers will hear our very own Shark Attack Survivor’s thrilling story and learn more about his fascination with sharks and the need for shark education and conservation.

This session includes a field excursion to the Long Island Aquarium! On Thursday campers will dive even deeper into the exciting world of sharks, skates and rays while exploring the aquarium’s various exhibits as they focus on all things chondricthyes!

SAMC Advanced Adventures in Marine Science

Advanced Adventures in Marine Science

Does your aspiring marine biologist want to take their learning and appreciation for the marine environment to the next level? This week features the hot topics our campers know and love, but will dive into them more deeply than ever before. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to tag a shark, dissect a squid, study aquaculture, or investigate bioluminescence? Then join us for a week-long immersion into the depths of the ocean while we focus on investigative science through surveys, sampling and scientific technique as we explore all of the marine habitats that surround our Marine Learning Center. Activities include seining for local fish and invertebrates, shell collection and species identification, habitat restoration projects, horseshoe crab and seahorse population monitoring and even several marine species dissections! (We highly recommend campers have attended Sea Adventures Marine Camp in the past, before registering for Advanced Adventures in Marine Biology.)

This session features our special guest speakers from NYS DEC! Through the I FISH NY Education Program, campers will learn how to identify several species of saltwater fishes often caught in Peconic Bay, fish ecology and local fishing regulations. After the educational lesson, campers will then get to participate in a saltwater fishing clinic to test their angling skills! (Note: campers are not permitted to bring their own fishing gear to camp, all necessary materials will be provided by NYS DEC for this special event.)

This session includes a field excursion on the Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat! On Thursday, campers will get the special opportunity to adventure aboard the Atlantis Explorer and tour the Peconic River and Flanders Bay. They will collect and identify local wetland species while exploring the Peconic Estuary's ecological wonders.

PRICE: $400/session/child

AGES: 9 - 13

DATES:
