This is a wonderful place with an excellent learning program for children of all ages. Our son has been coming here fro camp every summer since he was 4 (he's 9 now) an he loves it! We will most certainly be attending next summer as well
Keep up the great work MSI crew!!

We've sent our kids to the MSI summer camp for 4 years, and it's a wonderful way to expose them to the local marine biology. The organization is very well run.
Great field trips, awesome camps! Such a unique place. My kids love how hands on it is. They have learned so much about fish and Bay conservation there. It is definitely a favorite and I feel lucky to have it close by!
Best engaging summer camps! And terrific birthday party educational program. LOVE THIS PLACE! We're annual members also.
This is an amazing teaching location. The staff is so knowledgable and the science camps are amazing.
My children have been to summer camp at MSI, and we also went to an Earth Day event there in 2016. They always walk away excited to learn more about marine science. Can't really ask for more than your children excited about learning and having a good time with the staff at MSI. Big thumbs up :-)
My daughter came here on a fieldtrip and had the best time! Everyone was very friendly, patient and engaging, and she came home excited for us to take our own field trip to Half Moon Bay. Definitely a worthwhile trip!
Both of our children have participated in MSI summer programs multiple times, and every summer they learn new things and have a fantastic experience! I highly recommend it to anyone!
MSI is my favorite bay area institution for taking my 6-year-old son, who loves marine animals and wants to be a scientist. They make science fun and local. What could be better?
I first met the Marine Science Institute team when I signed up for a mixed ages experience of San Francisco Bay on their boat. It was a terrific experience seeing the various ways they have of teaching about what lives in the waters and mud of the bay.
Delighted with my experience I sponsored a twelve-year old girl for a week of camp. She was thrilled and says it is the best thing she has ever done. The following fall she began to take her school work more seriously and made such good grades that she was added to the Honor Roll. The MRI experience wasn't the entire reason for her renewed interest in her school work, but I believe it opened her eyes to what doing science is like. She met the excellent staff including the scientists aboard and could imagine doing it herself after college.
I highly recommend MRI for their learning experiences and your donor dollars. This is an excellent group to support knowing you will be making a difference for the many children served.
