Overview

Here at EMA we believe that hands-on learning is the best kind of learning! We offer classes for kids ages 4-7 and ages 8-12. Our summer program consists of a variety of shorter (1 day or 3 day) programs and are designed to be fun and encourage children to explore the outdoors. We strive to ignite children's natural curiosity about the world around them while providing them with the knowledge and tools to preserve, protect, and enjoy our environment! We also offer a FREE Community Class every Tuesday at 1:00pm at the Kinston Street beach access! We can't wait to adventure with you!

We were looking for something to do, and found the web page for Ecological Marine Adventures in Surf City. Most of what they offer is camp-type activities that cost $. Then we found their free Tuesday activity, and went. The owner, Taylor, led the activity....More
