Marine Biology Camps

Sea Turtle Camp is located in the coastal town of Topsail Beach, North Carolina. Join our program
and be part of a growing movement of young marine conservationists.

Coastal North Carolina offers a unique setting for hands-on, marine adventure! From the sandy shores of Topsail Island, campers will be ready to join in the excitement as they build on their knowledge of the coastal environment through a variety of ocean activities and interactive lessons led by our team of expert instructors.

You will explore the local beaches and salt marshes by foot, stand up paddleboard or surfboard! You will learn about the inter-connectedness of the ocean, our coastal barrier islands, the sounds and salt marshes, and the rivers and watersheds. When you are not in the water, you will explore our region by land. During your adventure, you will enjoy morning and evening beach walks, as you keep an eye out for sea turtle nests, learn about sea turtle conservation and discover local marine habitats.
