SSU Coast Camp
Coast Camp for 2018 is a month of ocean science fun for students. Sponsored by the NOAA Living Marine Resource Cooperative Science Center and Savannah State University, Coast Camp is a half-day ocean science program that teaches students about the ocean in an interactive, hands on curriculum. This academic camp utilizes Science, Math and Writing skills in conjunction with the Ocean Literacy Principles. The program is free and open to students between the ages of 7-18 years old.
Part of the mission of the SSU Coast Camp program is to provide real science experiences for the young people who participate in our program. The camp is designed to provide time in the classroom with hands on instruction as well as outdoor field work in the Marine Sciences.
The Coast Camp program works with Savannah State University Faculty, Students and Staff to provide a meaningful science experience campers can use at school and in their future as a scientist.
Camp start date is June 4th and the last day of camp June 29th. Camp will be half day for 4 weeks exploring Ocean and Marsh Ecology with field trips. All Camps will visit Tybee Island North Beach. Additional field trips may include Richmond Hill Fish Hatchery, Pin Point Heritage Museum, Savannah Wildlife Refuge and other local resources. (Dependent on availability) Each Camp section will be divided by age subsets:
- Age: 7-8
- Age: 9-10
- Age: 11-13
- Age: 14-18
There is a strict limit of 25 seats per camp level.
