For over four decades, MarineQuest has been at the forefront of providing transformative academic experiences for young students fascinated by the marine environment. Summer Enrichment Programs, tailored for ages 4-17, provide age-specific curricula and diverse opportunities to foster a deep-seated passion for marine science.

Tailored for the youngest explorers, the Junior Programs offer hands-on experiences in university labs, nurturing curiosity about the world. Intermediate Programs, spanning 4th-8th grades, blend marine science with research and field exploration, striking the perfect balance between education and thrill. Senior Programs, dedicated to 9th-11th graders, delve deeper into marine science careers, providing invaluable insights into potential future paths. Across all ages, MarineQuest ensures age-appropriate, research-based content, aligning with developmental stages and interests. From learning to snorkel, surf, or build underwater vehicles to exploring marine life and research spaces at UNCW, the spectrum of experiences enriches young minds.

Safety takes precedence, with certified lifeguards and safety equipment ensuring a secure environment for water-related activities. Beyond education, MarineQuest fosters friendships and lasting memories, creating a celebratory atmosphere of new encounters and oceanic wonders.

Registrations are open for Summer 2024! Don’t let learning take the summer off, just leave the textbooks at school. MarineQuest Summer Enrichment Programs get kids and teens outside to get their hands dirty and feet wet as they learn about the wonderful coastal environment where we live.
