Join us for GulfQuest's Summer Maritime Academies! All rising 1st-6th graders are eligible. The week-long Academy will feature a different maritime theme each day. Academy activities will be taught in our exhibit space & in the museum's classrooms. The curriculum for our Academy has strong STEM components, complemented by art, Social Sciences, and fun! During Academies cadets will get the chance to explore GulfQuest exhibits related to the Academy's daily theme. Our Academy is led by credentialed and experienced GulfQuest Educators in a safe and secure learning environment. A snack will be provided daily; campers will need to bring their own lunch.
