The camp will leave Tallahassee on July 6th stopping at Gulf Coast University’s student housing for the night, the following morning camp will leave for Key Largo where campers will stay at the Marine Lab for 3 nights and 4 days while studying a hands-on AP aligned course in Marine Biology and Environmental Science. Some activities include: seagrass ecology, mangrove ecology, coral reef ecology, soil sampling, phytoplankton identification, and diversity indexing lab. Course includes daily trips into the water on boats and swimming.  On the way back to Tallahassee we’ll stop at Zoo Miami for a behind the scenes lesson on the palm oil industry, and one last stop in Tampa where we’ll spend the night at the Florida Aquarium. Fee: $1800 members/ $1850 nonmembers per camper (includes all tuition to Marine Lab, Zoos, Aquarium, meals, lodging, and transportation).
