Are you looking for an adventurous, educational experience for your entire family? Join us at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab for a DHP Family Camp! This two-night weekend program will allow families to explore Dauphin Island, Alabama and investigate its habitats, guided by one of our full-time marine educators. Activities include a trip aboard the Sea Lab’s 65-foot research vessel, learning about estuaries, exploring beaches with a scientific eye, investigating salt marshes and their importance by foot and kayak, nighttime ghost crab hunting, bird walks through the forest, and a guided tour of the Alabama Aquarium. Activities will be primarily outdoors, and enrollment will be limited to allow for social distancing. Masks will be required when indoors and when social distancing is not possible. Dorm accommodations are on-site with double-occupancy rooms. The minimum age for participation is 8. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Program Cost: The cost of this program is $200, per participant. Cost includes meals, lodging, and all classes/activities. The $50 registration fee is part of the program cost and is non-refundable. The remaining balance will be due at check-in.
