Ocean Science Exploration Camp is the Inner Space Center’s summertime, week-long, Rhode Island, day camp. Through a variety of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and field investigations (that often require off-campus field trips), campers explore a core oceanographic theme (biological oceanography, geological oceanography, chemical oceanography, physical oceanography, and/or ocean exploration/technology).  Campers also tune into live oceanographic expeditions, engage with scientists that are involved in ocean research, and make connections to career pathways.


This summer will mark 10 YEARS of Ocean Science Exploration Camp!  The focus of this year’s camp will be Physical Oceanography
