About this event

Lagoon Castaway Camp 2022 Information

For kids age 8-13

Summer camp is the MRC education staff's favorite time of year! Every year, the Lagoon Castaway Camp inspires and educates youth about the importance of the Indian River Lagoon. We offer a variety of hands-on activities, helping campers discover the connection between science and nature in the world around them. The MRC education staff is pleased to offer all new content for this year's summer camp.

Sea Perch: Join us for a week of STEM activities! Campers will channel their creativity as they work together to construct underwater ROVs. Explorers will learn about scientific concepts such as electricity, physics, and engineering in a fun, hands-on manner. On the last day of camp, the young engineers will put their SeaPerch's to the test by navigating their ROV through underwater obstacle courses at a community pool.
