Description

UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County, Florida Sea Grant: Going Coastal Spring Break Camp

This is a three-day, marine science-themed camp for students 7 to 11 years of age. Taught by UF/IFAS Extension Florida Sea Grant Agent Libby Carnahan, the camp offers a fun balance of educational and recreational activities to engage and challenge your student! The camp will run Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00am-4:00pm at Weedon Island Preserve.

Lessons and Activities may include:

  • Coastal habitat hike
  • Guided canoe paddle
  • Saltwater fish seining and invertebrate dip-netting
  • Ethical fishing on the Weedon Pier
  • Daily art activity
  • Teambuilding

Ten Ohio State University students from the OSU Buck-I-SERV program will volunteer as teaching assistants for the camp, creating a 1:2 ratio of instructors to students! UF/IFAS and OSU have a 8-year relationship of working together to provide marine science opportunities for youth. The camp is set up as a 4-H Special Interest, SPIN Club. As such, each parent will fill out a 4-H membership form and liability form for their student. The forms will be emailed out prior to camp.

*Students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch qualify for a UF/IFAS Extension scholarship to attend the Spring Break Camp at a discounted cost. For a scholarship application, please email Libby Carnahan at lcarnahan@pinellascounty.org. You will be asked to provide proof of eligibility prior to the camp.
