Sea Sibs: Ages 5-9

Must be at least kindergarten ready by June 1st; this camp is intended for pairs or groups of children of different ages who want to attend camp together

Enjoy a week of friendly family fun exploring the marine environment in this buddy camp designed for siblings, cousins and family friends of different ages. Big and little kids who are pals will have a great time together as they fish, seine, snorkel and discover our coastal habitats. Explore ecological relationships while making some MarineQuest memories for your family album!
