Summer Camp: Ocean Exploration & NOAA Visit

For Youth Ages 12-18.

Event Canceled – not enough participation…

We know less about our global ocean than we do about space! The ocean is filled with amazing, alien-like creatures, crazy geological features, and astounding chemistry! It is the life force of this planet. There are many reasons to learn more about it!

Join us for a week of heavy science and math in our NOAA Ocean Exploration Camp! Youth will use NOAA’s “Why Do We Explore?” curriculum* to learn about the theories, science and obstacle involved in exploring the world’s ocean. We will spend 4 days experimenting here on the farm in Charles City and one day visiting NOAA’s Chesapeake Bay Office in Norfolk, VA.
