What will Sea Camp look like in 2022? 

Sea Camp will return to its original and beloved format! Sea Camp is a residential camp held at the Oregon coast in the town of Charleston just south of Coos Bay. Students meet at Southern Oregon University where they board the Sea Camp vans and travel to the coast. They spend the next three days and three nights exploring the wonders of the marine and estuarine environments by hiking, observing marine mammals, tide pooling, and taking classes in marine biology on the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology campus. As a Sea Camp student, you have full access laboratory facilities, hands-on experiences and adventures, and a professional staff that will enable you to learn about the ocean in new and exciting ways. Plus you will have fun on the beach - think roasting marshmallows and giant sand castles!

The tuition for the 2022 is $530 per student. Thanks to a one-time grant from The State of Oregon, we were able to reduce tuition down from the original $630 to $530. Tuition includes room, food, instruction, activities, supervision and transportation. We offer tuition assistance for students who demonstrate financial need. Awards are are generally $50-$150 off but more funding may be available in any given year. Applications for tuition assistance are located within the application.

Southern Oregon University Youth Programs and the Oregon Institute for Marine Biology (OIMB) have worked together to create an environment where students can learn more about the wonders of our oceans and coastlines.
