Just south of Miami in exotic Florida Keys,
Seacamp provides experiential education in
marine studies to students aged 8 to 21 years
old with a focus on hands-on and interactive
programs. TEX T BY SANDY LINDSEY
The campers and counselors at Seacamp come from around
the world to explore the blue water coral canyons filled with
invertebrates, fishes and mammals around Big Pine Key in order
to enrich their understanding of the watery portion of our planet.
Founded in 1966, the program has been continuously refined to
offer a range of subjects, a high degree of student participation
and an intense experience that is both action-packed and safe.
The field observation and research has an impact on students
that no classroom lecture can, proving the connections between
living things on land and in the ocean and the complexity of the
ecological, social, cultural and economic issues facing the world.
While the camp emphasizes marine research and exploration using
snorkeling and scuba skills, there are also the more traditional
camp activities of sailing, lifesaving, windsurfing, photography,
arts & crafts; Seacamp.org.
