    "Gaining knowledge – and inspiration – begins with discovery." That is the essence of Camp SEA Lab, a multi-faceted summer camp run by CSU Monterey Bay that awakens youth – local and elsewhere – to the wonders in the waters off our shores. It’s an essence neatly summed up by the camp’s acronym: science, education, adventure.

    SEA Lab – which was founded in 1997 with seed funding from the Packard Foundation, the California Coastal Commission and a California Sea Grant – is also a year-round operation, and hosts school groups at a facility in Aptos in every season of the year except summer.
