Marine Biology Camp Inc. is based in South Florida and is run through various cities and schools. The camp director, Gerard Loisel, has been teaching marine biology to students of all ages for the past 37 years. He currently teaches marine biology and oceanography at Nova Southeastern University where he was the College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teacher of the Year for 2008-2009. Loisel was also the host of the PBS television series "Marine Aquarium World".
The camps run throughout the summer and during spring and winter breaks. Children attending the camp get to study a sea grass community, explore the intertidal zone, participate in a sea turtle nest relocation program (summer only), study dangerous marine animals, learn how to tag fish for scientific research, and much more. Field trips include visits to the Miami Seaquarium and the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science on Virginia Key. Each camp session is 5 days long and is open to children 8 to 14 years old. The fees are set by each individual city or school and vary based on which city is hosting the camp. For those who've attended this camp on Miami Beach in recent years, please note that Gerard Loisel's camp now operates from the Miami Yacht Club (next to Jungle Island). The 2013-14 winter camps will consist of 2-day camps that will run from 9 to 4 each day and operate out of the Village of Key Biscayne.
