This program was designed to be in line with the Ohio State University’s spring break as mentors from the OSU Buck-I-SERV program will volunteer as teaching assistants for the camp. UF/IFAS and OSU have a 7-year relationship of working together to provide marine science opportunities for youth. This will be our 2nd spring break camp, launching off the success of last year’s program!
