Sea Turtle Camp

About Sea Turtle Camp

Sea Turtle Camp’s mission is to immerse teens in the field of marine biology and empower them to be proactive and take ownership of environmental conservation; we develop focused, responsible, independent individuals who know how to have fun while being stewards of the ocean. While we can’t solve all the world’s problems, we know that one person can make a difference, and a camp full of eager knowledge-hungry teens can have a strong, positive impact.

Through our grassroots approach, we strive to show teens a wide variety of possibilities at a time in their lives when they have many potential roads to follow. In so doing they will learn about the rewards of selfless giving in their community, gain exposure to other cultures, and experience different career paths.


Costa Rica Trip Leader

“Going to Costa Rica with a group of teens was a really wonderful experience. Sea Turtle Camp pays for all your expenses, including flights, so you have the opportunity to experience this beautiful country alongside a small group of teens, including ziplining, white water rafting, working directly with sea turtles, cooking with a local family, and more! It was also a great experience to support the personal growth of these teens, who were often away from their families in a foreign country for the first time. I grew a lot in supporting them through this experience.”
