Camp SEA Lab’s mission to foster lifelong excitement, scientific understanding, and stewardship of our coasts and ocean is ambitious and important, as the need to increase science literacy and ocean education for youth and adults is well documented.
The Friends of Camp SEA Lab, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, was incorporated to further aid in the development of the Camp SEA Lab program. The organization’s Board of Trustees, comprised of talented volunteers dedicated to help further Camp SEA Lab’s mission, fosters important regional partnerships, oversees strategic planning implementation, and carries out philanthropic activities and fundraising events.

Many underserved students do not have the financial means to participate in our programs, and without generous gifts they would not otherwise be able to attend.
Sponsor a single day field experience for a class of underserved students from a school in Camp SEA Lab’s local community. With your gift, students will spend a full day in the field “getting their hands wet and minds engaged” in marine science activities filled with fun and adventure they will remember for a lifetime!
The cost of $1,500 covers all program fees for up to 40 students and their teachers and includes bus transportation to and from their school. Participating schools can be adopted from our waiting list or another school of your choice. Special recognition of this sponsorship will be given at our annual meeting. Contact us for details!
