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.
At this time registration is full.  Please sign up for our newsletter for information about next year’s session of camp.
