Sea Camp dates changed

The Little Cayman Research Center will be hosting the 10th annual Caribbean Sea Camp from 7 – 14 August instead of from 12 – 18 July.

‘Because we are hosting students, summer is one of our busiest times of the year and we do everything we can to maximize the capacity of LCRC, therefore educating as many youth as possible’ said Central Caribbean Marine Institute’s Education Officer Sally Coppage.

This year’s events and activities have been developed to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge in marine ecosystems and conservation.

Students will have the opportunity to gain invaluable hands on experience working with marine scientists collecting data, mapping habitats, debating issues that concern our reefs and many other fun productive activities.

Students aged 14-18 who are interested in learning about the marine environment, gaining experience for their educational future and having fun in the process, are encouraged to apply.

The programme accepts both local and international students. Scholarship opportunities are provided to local students who are able to show an active interest in coral reef conservation.

Students interested in the programme must complete an application indicating their own personal ideas about why coral reefs are important and obtain a letter of recommendation as to why they should be considered for placement in this program
