Ocean Adventure Program


We make learning a whale of an adventure!

Join Ocean Adventure Programs’ amazing staff and more than 45 years of experience as we make learning a “Whale of an Adventure!” Mornings are spent at our NEW LOCATION, Marina Park Community Center. Each morning, campers will dissect a variety of creatures including a shark and a starfish, examine plankton under a microscope, test for density, watch chemical reactions, grow crystals, make fish prints, and do ocean-related arts and crafts and hands-on experiments. With our NEW location, we are a 1-minute walk to the beach at 14th Street and a 3-minute walk to the bay. Every afternoon, campers go to the beach or the bay to explore the tide pools, and learn about ocean safety and swim under the watchful eyes of our CPR and First Aid certified teachers and camp counselors. NEW, we are adding a chance to experience, surfing, kayaking, and standup paddleboarding. Come one week, two weeks, or more; there is always something new to learn each week!

Classes are taught by CPR certified instructors with a 4 to 1 student/instructor ratio.
