Family Camps at The Marine Science Consortium are an ideal way for your family to get away, unwind, and enjoy a holiday weekend on the beautiful coastal islands of the Eastern Shore of Virginia! Spend time with your family on the gorgeous coast discovering and learning about the world of marine science. Family Campers will throw a trawl net and collect marine creatures on an ocean research vessel, explore marine habitats, kayak through tidal creeks, walk knee deep in marsh mud and enjoy the sun on a barrier island beach. Wild Ponies, Egrets and Horseshoe Crabs all await you! We currently offer two Family Camps over the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends and one week long extended option during the first week of August. This could be the perfect opportunity for a mid-summer or end of the summer getaway for your family. We provide the meals and activities, so your family can focus on new experiences, share stories and laugh together in a relaxed outdoor atmosphere. You will not regret the decision, and your family will thank you over and over again!

The course is all inclusive; meals, lodging, supplies, activities and field trips are all included in the cost.
