Registration for Summer 2024 will open early 2024! Stay tuned to this page and our social media channels for updates.

 Mote Camps combine our groundbreaking research with fun, hands-on, and age-appropriate, inquiry based activities. Campers can discover the wonders of marine animals and environments studied by Mote scientists – a great way to gain steam in STEM education even when school is out.
