    Amazing experience for my daughter!
    My 15 year old daughter attended the marine biology camp in June 2023. She had the time of her life. When we picked her up she was crying because she did not want to come home. She made several friends that she is keeping in contact with, and they are making plans to return next year. She has always been interested in marine biology and this camp just reinforced her passion. I was nervous about sending her so far away for a week with people she didn’t know, but it was an amazing experience for her.

    I love marine biology!
    My 15yo daughter attended the Sea Turtle Camp in Hawaii in July 2023. She had an amazing experience. The enrichment and learning about marine biology, especially in Hawaii was the best ever! She made lifelong friends and became more passionate about conservation and marine biology. She says the camp leaders were friendly and supportive throughout the week. The food was great and the experience of staying in dorms at the University of Hawaii Manoa gave her a glimpse of what university could include. From a parents perspective, we flew down with our daughter due to having to cross the border with a minor. The camp gave very good instructions and even called to let us know what baggage claim to meet them at. Then they were off with their cohort. STC posts pictures every day on their Facebook page so it was great to follow along on their adventures. They also provided instructions for pick up at the university which was great. One item that they must continue is that the camp attendees are not allowed to have their cell phones, this gives our kids a chance to get away from their tech and social media pressures and forces them to interact and make friends. I highly recommend this camp to any teenager who has an interest in marine sciences.

    Once in a life time!
    The trip was more than I could of ever hoped for. The adventure of being in another country alone could be amazing but the various locations and people we met along the way made it incredible. Volunteering with the turtles was truly a life affirming piece of my journey. I have wanted to be a marine biologist since I was very young and this trip created a larger desire to pursue this degree in college. I made friendships with people from all over the United States and hope we can stay in touch for years to come.

    A great adventure
    My son (age 16) attended Sea Turtle Camp Hawaii for a two week adventure in July 2023. I was wary of how it would go, since he had never been away for that length of time and without access to a cellular device. My concerns were misplaced. He had a wonderful time! I think the group was about 12 students and they seemed to coalesce as a term very quickly. The camp "leaders", Madeline, Molly, and Ryan were all excellent. Drop-off at Honolulu airport was seemless as was pickup two weeks later. Everyday the Camp posted pictures of that particular days' activities so it was obvious from the photos that everyone was having a grand time. There are many forms to complete but given the range of activities it was reasonable, just time consuming. That is my only minor whine. 100% recommendation.

Our 14 year old son has wanted to be a marine biologist. Sea Turtle Camp gave him the beginnings of this experience. He earned his open water certificate and looks forward to qualifying for his advanced open water certificate. The camp counselors were contentious and caring. With the pandemic I thought the arrangements provided everyone safety and protection. Sea Turtle Camp provided a wonderful summer experience, and I would recommend it without reservation.

Our 16 year old loved her experience at camp! She met new friends and said she only missed us a little:-). A wonderful opportunity to volunteer and a safe environment. Sleeping was lights out at 10 pm and up at 6 pm. Meals provided were good and they are on top of any food allergies.

Our daughter loved it! She arrived on her 14th birthday and all of the counselors sang happy birthday to her as she checked in. She got to care for and learn all about several different kinds of sea turtles. And she made many many friends. She definitely wants to return for camp next summer, possibly to do the SCUBA camp. Highly recommended.

Our 14 year old son was a part of the Marine Biology Immersion camp and spent 11 days being a part of a really educational and fun-filled experience. He got to learn a bit about scuba diving, volunteer at the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, be a part of turtle walks and so much more. He's already talking about going next year. The entire staff was wonderful, informative and they uploaded pictures of all of their adventures each day. My son said that the food was good too and loved this camp so very much.

My daughter participated in the Marine Biology Immersion Session and it was fabulous. She is considering majoring in marine biology in college and this was a great way to test out her interest and see what would be involved in that career path. The campers had a very thorough experience at the Center, on the trawler, on the beaches learning about the sea turtles and what threatens them. Along with the service hours and all the educational parts of the 11 days, they also had a blast boogie boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming and playing beach volleyball. There were just 13 students in her group so lots of opportunity to get to know each other and to interact with the turtles.She has attended a variety of camps over the years and she said this was the absolute best. As a parent I was very pleased and impressed with how well it was run, and loved the many great photos they post on their Facebook site so you can see what your child has been doing each day.

My son was disappointed in the experience. He was really looking forward to experiencing some Marine Biology fun as that is what he is looking to go to college for. However he said that they didn’t do much of anything but spend time swimming at the beach. They only went to the Sea turtle hospital and aquarium and that was the most Marine Biology that they got. He was highly disappointed and does not want to return. He is 13 and it was his first camp experience.
