Students ages 13-15 may apply to become counselors-in-training and gain a rich educational experience, plus school service credits. New this year is ‘Gulf Rescue’. In collaboration with Sea World and Sea Rescue television programming, the campers will learn how to respond to injured or sick marine animals plus most importantly to help prevent some of the issues related to marine debris or toxics.
