Marine Teens

WHAT IS A MARINE TEEN?

Marine Teens act as assistants to Day Camp staff and Aquarium Educators. Responsibilities may include:

  • Preparing materials for activities
  • Facilitating children’s activities
  • Helping to clean up after activities
  • Assisting with escorting children through the Aquarium and to outdoor areas
