BIOS is closely monitoring the situation surrounding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to best protect its employees and visitors. Please note that applications for Ocean Science Camp, Marine Science Internship and Bermuda Program remain open but these activities may be cancelled at short notice. Please return to this page for updates. Details on the measures taken to manage COVID-19 in Bermuda can be found here.
Ocean Science Camp is geared towards students aged 12-15 that are interested in the ocean, but may not have had previous opportunities to study marine science. This camp offers an introduction to the marine life of Bermuda and provides a scientific foundation to kick-start student curiosity in the sciences. Students will learn about Bermuda’s ecosystems, food webs, productivity of the ocean, the plants and animals on local reefs, current events in marine biology and much more.
Our mission is to provide a unique experiential education opportunity for campers who are genuinely interested in learning about the marine environment. Through this 1-week program students participate in snorkel training, boating, and research-based field trips. Students will work as a team during group activities and projects that are centered on BIOS’s scientific research. This 1-week camp will be snorkel based but will include a PADI Discover Scuba (DSD) experience in which students can practice taking their first breaths underwater.*
When: July 20-24, 2020 (Monday – Friday, 9am – 4:30pm), tuition fee: $900
Applications must be submitted by May 30, 2020.
* PADI dive certification is not a component of week-long activities.
