Enrollment Now Open for the Eco-Explorer Summer Camp

Enrollment is now open for Sea Turtle Conservancy’s annual Eco-Explorers “Ocean Motion and Much More!” summer camps for children ages 9 to 15.

These week-long, day camps will be offered in June at the Barrier Island Center, located in the heart of the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in beautiful Melbourne Beach, Florida

The Eco-Explorers summer camps provide a special opportunity for children to explore diverse lagoon life, the world beneath the sea, and the beach at the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, which attracts the most nesting sea turtles in the US!

At Eco-Explorers summer camps, children make special connections with ocean and lagoon habitats and wildlife, while sharing fun adventures on the water such as snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding and surfing.

The program cost of $290 per week includes transportation, certified aquatic instructors, equipment, a t-shirt and a guided sea turtle walk with preferred reservation.
