Campers must be pre-registered by 5 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to their selected camp week. Due to the extensive preparation we undergo to be ready for each camper, we are unable to accept on-site registration. All required camp paperwork and confirmation materials will be included in the Confirmation Email once registered. Please REVIEW and COMPLETE ALL MATERIALS, including the Emergency Medical Treatment Authorization and Video Release Form (which needs to be signed by the camper's legal guardian). One form per camper per camp program. This form may be faxed, mailed or emailed to:

Mote Marine Laboratory
ATTN: Camp Programs
1600 Ken Thompson Pkwy
Sarasota, FL 34236
Fax: (941) 388-4381


If your preferred week of camp is full and you would like to be added to the wait list, please email camps@mote.org. Include: your name, your camper’s name, phone number, name of the camp program and the dates you'd prefer. Should other campers cancel, we will contact those on the wait list on a first-come, first-served basis.


2019-20 scholarships are not available. Please continue to visit this page, as scholarships may be offered at a later date.  


There are no refunds for Mote Education camp programs unless Mote cancels the program. If you provide notice of cancellation via email more than two weeks before the program begins, we will refund 50% of your registration fee. If you cancel within two weeks of the program or fail to show up without giving notice, you will be charged in full for the program. Mote reserves the right to cancel or modify any program or schedule. Modification of a program schedule by Mote does not constitute grounds for a refund. If camp registrations do not reach the minimum number, you will be notified the week before.
