This summer, kids entering grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 can particpate in outdoor, field-based learning about coastal habitat, wildlife, and human impacts on them.
Cost: $250 includes all instruction, materials, equipment, and snacks for the week. Students must bring their own lunch.

The first session of our 2013 Barnegat Bay Coast Camp at the Marris Stella Center in Harvey Cedars this summer was a definite success! With 17 students enrolled and a waiting list of 8, anticipation was high for this year’s camp! Perfect weather made for a fantastic week of hands on, active learning for all students. Student’s 5th-8th grade enjoyed learning through the process of seining, birding, shelling, crabbing, fishing and plant identification. Throughout the week each day focused on a specific activity involving the coastal zone, whether it was learning how to identify the birds stealing your French fries or the methods of cleaning an oil spill all students were engaged with hands on activities that take them further than a text book ever could. With two more sessions of camp remaining, this summer is sure to hold many more exciting opportunities to learn about the coastal zone that is so vital in our everyday life!
