Description:
Young Women in Science (YWS) is a week-long, summer day-camp designed to get young women excited about and involved in science, the ocean and conservation. A variety of hands-on field activities increase knowledge about the importance of sea otters and spark a personal connection with the natural world that will lead them to become stewards of the ocean. Girls can explore ocean habitats from kayaks and boogie boards, and through surface scuba diving.

YWS serves young women regardless of primary language or economic background. One camp, conducted bilingually in both English and Spanish, will be offered this summer.
