Thank you for your interest in our summer programs! 

Florida Oceanographic Society offers fun and educational marine science-themed summer camps for children ages 5-16. The health and safety of our campers has been the top priority in all discussions related to the fate of our 2020 summer camps. At this time, we have made the decision to start our summer camp programming on June 29th. Updated dates for all camp sessions can be found below. Although the current global health emergency is rapidly evolving, Florida Oceanographic Society is committed to adhering to all local, state, and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19. As a result, it is possible that our camp schedule may be further modified in the upcoming weeks. Camp sessions canceled due to COVID-19 are fully refundable.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our 2020 summer camps, please contact Camp Director Shannon Dack at sdack@floridaocean.org

If your child was scheduled for a June camp, and you have not received an email from us, please contact Shannon at the above email address.
