Geological oceanographers study processes of the ocean to discover how the Earth and oceans were formed and how ongoing processes may change them in the future. They examine the ocean from the deepest depths to the shallow coasts, including beaches, estuaries, and rivers. During this week-longday camp, campers will explore the geological features and history of coastal Rhode Island.  Throughout the week, campers will conduct field investigations and apply scientific techniques to sample sediments, survey beaches, and investigate how coastal RI habitats differ and may be changing.

Campers should be between the ages of 11-15.
To reserve a spot for your child in the June 2017 session of the ISC’s Ocean Science Exploration Camp, please review and complete the online registration form available through this link: If you are registering multiple campers (e.g. siblings, cousins, etc.), please note, only one registration may be completed at a time.
Upon receipt of this form, an electronic invoice will be emailed to you. You may choose to either pay the full amount of camp costs (as stated above) or at least a 50% deposit. Once this initial payment is received, your child will be officially registered for the June 2017 session of ISC Ocean Science Exploration Camp.   

Please note, only this one week of camp is being offered; no additional weeks of camp will be added.  Registration is on a first come/first serve basis.  Registration will be capped at 25, at which time the camp will be full.
