ABOUT NHMI - OUR
SEACAMP ASSOCIATION, INC.
Seacamp Association, Inc.
emerged in 1966 from the cooperative efforts of parents,
scientists, business professionals, camp leaders and others
dedicated to marine science, to the education of youth, and/or to
the values of camping programs and experiences. A 501(c)(3)
non-profit corporation, this organization operates under the
guidance of a Board of Directors.
The organization has
operated a summer residential marine science camp program, Seacamp, since 1966. As of January, 1997,
approximately 7500 teenagers - hailing from all 50 states and 26
other countries - have attended one of Seacamp's 18-day programs.
Although their backgrounds vary, these campers have all shared at
least one critical common interest: the importance of oceans and
marine life to their world.
Harbor Marine Institute (NHMI) program was started in 1970 for
the purpose of complementing Seacamp Association's mission to
provide experiential marine science education opportunities. The
NHMI program extends these opportunities into the school year,
from early September through late May, for students from 4th grade
through college level, as well as teachers. Approximately 8,000
participants enjoy the workshops and residential programs at the
NHMI field studies center each year.
