Teen Programs at Monterey Bay Aquarium

Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of my favorite places on Earth. On a recent visit to their website, I learned that they offer various programs for teens. I wish I had had such opportunities when I was a teenager. They sound so cool! Take this one, for example:

Young Women in Science (YWS)
This week-long, summer day-camp is designed to get young women excited about and involved in science, the ocean and conservation. Through a variety of hands-on field activities, we strive to increase their knowledge and to spark a personal connection with the natural world that will lead them to become future stewards of the ocean. Kids get the opportunity to explore ocean habitats by joining in activities such as surface scuba diving, boogie boarding and kayaking.

We aim to serve young women regardless of primary language or economic background. We offer three camps in the summer that are conducted in both English and Spanish. Young women entering grades 6, 7 or 8, who reside in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties, are eligible to apply.

I hope that teens reading this post who qualify and live in California will apply to these programs. Likewise, I hope that those of you who work with teens or have teenagers of your own will pass the links and information along to them and encourage them to apply. I simply cut-and-pasted the text from the Monterey Bay Aquarium's site in an effort to help them spread the word and get more applicants. Please feel free to repost this post if you'd like, but note that YWS is only one of the four different teen programs that they offer.
