Camp sessions are July 28-30 (6 to 9 years of age), August 6-8 (9 to 12 years of age) and August 11-15 (6 to 12 years of age).

Offered through HSU’s Telonicher Marine Lab in Trinidad, Calif., the 3 to 5-day camps give kids ages six to 12 a chance to learn about and explore local marine habitats. The sessions are: July 28-30 (6 to 9 years of age), August 6-8 (9 to 12 years of age) and August 11-15 (6 to 12 years of age).

Each day runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will focus on a specific topic such as marine mammals, fishes and human impacts on marine life. Classes will be held in the “wet” classroom of HSU’s Marine Lab in Trinidad, Calif. and activities will include games, crafts and short field trips. Each camp session will also include a tide-pooling day where kids will get hands-on experience exploring local beaches and rocky intertidal zones.

The cost is $96 for the full 3-day program and $160 for the 5-day program. The cost per day is $40 for both camps.
