Oregon Sea Grant hosts a number of summer day camps for youth 8 to 18 years old with themes that range from marine technology to marine mammals. Campers interact with researchers and learn about the marine environment through hands-on programs and field trips.

Thank you for a great summer camp season!

Thank you to all who joined us for our in-person summer day camps at Hatfield Marine Science Center during July and August, 2021. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring coastal habitats, conducting hands-on STEM activities, and connecting your camper to professionals working in a variety of marine science and STEM careers. All updates related to our 2022 summer day camps will be posted to this website - be sure to check back. As of now, we are planning to hold in-person camps at Hatfield Marine Science Center, though those plans are subject to change pending COVID-19 related safety protocols and guidance. Our goal will be to confirm all camp themes and descriptions in December 2021 so registration can open January 2022 - we hope to see you next year!
