Highlighted 2017 Middle School Camps

Underwater ROVs:
Every day ocean exploration leads us to new discoveries. How do marine scientists discover what lies on the ocean floor or in areas too risky for us to explore? They send in robots - or in this case ROVs (remotely operated vehicles)!

Spend time understanding ocean exploration and the types of equipment used - including the differences between submersibles and ROVs. Use a variety of STEM skills to work with a team to design, build and operate an ROV. Campers can expect to use a lot of simple hand tools to engineer the ROV frame. Camp will end with the task of each team completing an ROV that can accomplish a surprise underwater science mission!  
Drone search and rescue is a rapidly evolving necessity for first responders around the world, adding new solutions to help people and save lives. Learn how to fly and code drones in order to locate items and safely rescue them to safety. Teams will also learn how to accurately acquire aerial data that, in return, will help make informed and targeted decisions simulating real-world applications. This is an action-packed and creative camp full of purpose.

STEAM Animal Camp:
In this Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math based summer camp, you will have the opportunity to engineer prosthetic devices for animals just like Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium! The week will culminate with groups using their biomechanical engineering skills to design their own prosthetic part for a unique animal of their own!

  • Q. How do camps communicate with parents?

    Email is the primary source of communication during the summer. Please insure that your email address is up to date at time of registration, and that you check your email account while camp is in session.
  • Q. Can a child get Zika at summer camp?

    Prevention Is key! For parents worried about their children contracting Zika, the most important thing they can do is minimize the likelihood that they will get bitten in the first place. This is not the time to skimp on the bug spray.

    According to the CDC, "wearing insect repellant is the best way to prevent diseases spread by mosquitoes."

    How do you know if your bug spray is effective? Look for EPA-registered ingredients like DEET, picaridin, IR3535, which can be found in brands like Cutter, OFF!, Skintastic, and Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus. Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) is also a recognized bug repellent, although parents need to be aware that it should not be used on children under the age of 3.

    Symptoms of Zika include fever, rash, red eyes, joint pain. Onset of symptoms may appear 3-7 days after exposure.

  • Q. How is medical insurance taken care of at camp?

    All parents/guardians are responsible for the camper's medical insurance and medical bills.
