California Sea Grant College Program
Supporting an Educational Marine Science Camp for Urban Youth

The goal of Sea Camp is to teach inner-city and under-represented youth, many of whom have never been to the beach, about the plants and animals living in Santa Monica Bay. Through hands-on activities, students learn about the many kinds of interactions between people and coastal ecosystems. These day-long summer programs complement the UCLA Ocean Discovery Center’s school-year programs for students.
