The Inner Space Center’s Ocean Science Exploration Camp is a week-long, Rhode Island, day camp (9am- 3pm daily), for youth, ages 11-14, that explores different oceanographic themes. Through a variety of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and field investigations, campers explore the dynamic properties of the global ocean, the animals that live within it, and the tools and technologies used for ocean exploration. Throughout the week, campers tune into live oceanographic expeditions and are surrounded by video, audio, and other oceanographic data, experiencing the amazing ocean discoveries that unfold at the ISC in real time. Campers will also visit university laboratory facilities, engage with scientists that are involved in active missions, and discover ocean careers.


Unfortunately, given the current COVID-19 situation, the Inner Space Center has canceled all in-person summer programs, including  the summer 2020 session of Ocean Science Exploration Camp.

We look forward to welcoming campers back to the ISC in the Summer of 2021.
