Education Programs

A large part of our mission is public outreach which includes building up the next generation to care and be stewards of our oceans and the many diverse ecosystems and creatures they hold. Join us for an in-person camp or one of the many virtual programs we offer below. All programs are private and tailored to the group.  

Dolphin Camp

Each private camp is 45 minutes. Learn all about the marine mammals in South Carolina. We'll walk through a mock stranding response and learn how you can help. You'll learn about dolphin behaviors and even practice your data skills in a head to head game. Other activities may include a beach sweep, coloring, or a 'conservation conversation'. 

Each session is private for your family or group (up to 8 people) and can be tailored to the ages of the group. This is a great way to learn about our work and ways you can help all year long. 

*Program is designed for 8-13 year olds but younger siblings are welcome!

*Please specify ages, abilities, and any specific topics they are interested in. 

Virtual Programs

Lead by outreach coordinator, Brooke Brown. Virtual experiences can be set up for schools and at home learning. Each program can be tailored! Includes 45-minute virtual field trip with Q&A.

Strand Feeding 

Stranding feeding is a crazy cool and unique behavior that we get to see here regularly in the lowcounty. But what is it, how did it start, why do they do it, and how does it differ across the globe?
