FIELD CAMP (Entering Grades 9-12) - FULL
THIS CAMP IS FULL.
Students entering grades 9-12, are you interested in science, the outdoors, and learning about your environment? Have you ever thought about spending the day with a researcher in the field?
Well, if so, this is your camp. The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science’s High School Field Camp is just what you need. We will be spending the week on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with biologists to research diamond back terrapins, MS gulf coast fish, the bay of MS, as well as, MS sandhill cranes and a local fossil site. We are excited to be spending the week with these research scientists and learning about these different coastal habitats. We will kayak/canoe, camp, as well as many other outdoor activities. This camp is not for the faint of heart, however it is truly a one-of-a-kind camp and will give you a new perspective of what true scientists do daily. Come join us and explore the MS Gulf Coast and its amazing wildlife and beauty. We will be staying at Camp Wilkes in Biloxi each night.
