COVID-19 Update
It is with an abundance of caution that NOAA and Washington Sea Grant are canceling this year’s NOAA Science Camp program. We were very much looking forward to connecting with another group of enthusiastic campers this year. However, due to the uncertain status of Washington’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order in the coming months, we have suspended all in-person programming for our summer season. Please reach out with any questions and, as always, feel free to join our mailing list for notifications of future programming in 2021.
