Camp Under the Sea Week 1 Recap

Camp Under the Sea introduced our 4th-5th grade campers to the world of marine biology this week. The girls were conservationists as they constructed protective sea turtle cages. They were also orthotists and created prosthetic tails for injured dolphins. Campers became skilled programmers as well as they explored technology that can help our underwater creatures. The girls learned all this and more about the science under the sea.
