Summer is full of warm weather, beach days. making memories and adventuring with EMA!

We offer camps and classes for adventurers of all ages- from sea squirts (age 3-5) to guppies (ages 5-8) to groupers (ages 9-11+) to great whites (ages 11+) and even to include really big kids (aka adults).

Our summer camps meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 3 hours per day. They consist of a variety of engaging (and fun) topics! Our multi-day camps are more than just summer fun, they allow for new friendships to bloom over the week and encourage children to explore the outdoors, go on adventures, and most importantly, to love and take care of the ocean. 

Our summer classes meet for one day per week on either Tuesday or Thursday for 3 awesome hours, except for our Sea Squirt friends who explore for 2 hours per class! EMA summer classes are designed to use exploration and natural curiosity to learn and to deepen the love the ocean and all the amazing creatures that live in it. Just as our summer camps, topics vary throughout the summer and they all include hands-on activities, games and exploration.

EMA strives to ignite children's natural curiosity about the world around them, while providing them with the knowledge and tools to preserve, protect, and enjoy our environment for years to come! We call it conservation education, the campers call it fun.
