Youth Marine Summer Camps

To help stay connected to our campers and families in 2020 we worked hard to create a way to bring camp to you! The new Digital Education Initiative created opportunities for fun learning for our children on so many Marine themed topics. Visit:our website here:

CCE Marine Camp Kits are also available here:

Through these efforts we will provide an opportunity for campers to still experience some of the activities and experiences we traditionally offer at camp, but in an at-home setting with opportunities for outdoor self-guided field explorations your family can take part in. We look forward to being able to return with our traditional summer camp experiences next year, and hope you consider supporting these alternative camp experiences this summer!

Please visit our individual camp pages for more detailed information on Virtual Experiences:

Our marine themed summer day camps are run out of several sites throughout Suffolk County and provide marine science based programming to children 6-14 years old. These unique week-long summer experiences use hands-on activities and field trips to help children learn about the remarkable aquatic life of Long Island as well as marine life across the globe! Your child is guaranteed to come home with a new level of appreciation and interest in aquatic habitats.
