Project Oceanology is a 501(c)(3) year-round marine science and environmental education organization located at Avery Point in Groton, CT with a mission to nurture enthusiasm for science and for our planet’s marine environment. Our summer camps are licensed by the State of Connecticut, our vessel operators are licensed by the U. S. Coast Guard, and our marine educators have expertise, educational backgrounds, and extensive experience in the delivery of marine science and environmental education enrichment programs to elementary through high school students, college students, summer camp participants, and the general public.
For students entering grades 6-12, Project Oceanology is offering two residential camps this summer – Ocean Camp and our new Marine Science Research Experience. Residential campers are accommodated in our hostel for a week-long immersion in hands-on, brains-on marine science education and fun aboard our research vessels, along nearby shorelines, and in our marine laboratories. Details on the camps and registration information is available at https://www.oceanology.org/summer-camps. This year our generous donors have also enabled us to offer need based financial assistance to offset the cost of tuition.
