The Whale Camp's marine scinece program has had an exceptional experiential impact on hundreds of students ages ten to seventeen. We're located on the Bay of Fundy between Maine and Nova Scotia, an area famous for having the highest tides in the world--it's a marine scientists dream location.
The Whale Camp's hands-on programming and vibrantly personal experiences brings students face-to-face to study whales, porpoises, seals, puffins and numerous other marine and avian species in their own natural habitat. These experiences have proven to be both life-affirming and life-changing, igniting and inspiring a passionate curiosity to learn more about our ocean's and planet's life processes.
Board our 65-foot sailboat for unmatched examinations of marine life. Help collect data to document whale distribution, feeding and behavioral patterns. Gain hands-on experience using onboard marine biology equipment. Unveil the powerful and endangered processes of life in the sea. Explore beaches, coastal trails and fishing villages. Investigate life in the tidal pools and bogs. While some programs teach you about marine biology with lots of time in a classroom, we take you out to sea three days each week to directly encounter the whales and other marine life for the best marine science experience. This is why the Whale Camp is the place where inspiration, exploration and discovery abound. This is why, of all marine biology camps and marine science programs, the Whale Camp is the best experience.
