2021 Summer CampsSTEAM Summer Experiences
In-Person Day Camps
CSI is currently planning 4 weeks of camp, beginning on July 12 and running through August 6. Our summer camps focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) concepts and utilize hands-on experiences and exploration of the great outdoor spaces of the Outer Banks. We will be offering two themes and alternating weeks. Camp cost is $285, and we will accept up to 13 campers per week.
Coastal Marine Biology & Ecology Camp
Offering July 12-16 and July 26-30.
Have you ever wondered why some organisms live where they do? Or are you curious about what purpose some species serve? If you answered “YES!” to either of these questions, Coastal Marine Biology and Ecology camp is for you. During this week-long daytime program, campers will learn about the make-up of coastal habitats and the animals that call them home through hands-on labs and field trips as well as fun sessions with local marine biologists and ecologists. Coastal Marine Biology and Ecology is a great way to experience our beautiful coastal ecosystems and understand why they are so important. The camp is open to those 10-15 years of age. Each day will begin at CSI at 9 AM and will end at 3:30 PM.
Oceanography & Marine Science Technology Camp
Offering July 19-23 and August 2-6.
What drives currents and waves off our coast? What’s happening on the seafloor and in the water column? Why do shorelines transform? Why are so many shipwrecks off our coast? Find all the answers when you participate in Oceanography & Marine Science Technology Camp! In this week-long daytime program, campers will learn about oceanographic and coastal processes through the lens of technology and interact with scientists who use the tools daily. Each day will begin with the exploration of a basic research technique followed by the introduction of an advanced technology that makes the job both easier and often more fascinating, too! The camp is open to those 10-15 years of age. Each day will begin at CSI at 9 AM and will end at 3:30 PM.
