TIDE Camp

Taking an Interest in Delaware's Estuary (TIDE) Camp is a marine science summer program for high school students. 

TIDE Camp 2013ABOUT TIDE CAMP

The Summer TIDE Program is a 13-day instructional camp for high school students that runs from July 16 to July 28 this year. This summer program focuses on the atmospheric, oceanic, and biogeochemical processes at work in the Delaware Bay. Camp academic activities include classroom instruction, discussions, lectures and visits to modern oceanographic/atmospheric laboratories, as well as field excursions to the Delaware Bay for sampling and exploration. Students will spend time at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment's campuses in Newark and Lewes, Delaware.

Applications for TIDE Camp are due by April 14. Students must have completed at least one year of high school and not yet graduated prior to the camp. Those entering 9th grade or recent graduates are not eligible for TIDE Camp.

Students will gain an understanding of sea breeze, tides, habitat loss, species adaptation, salt-water marsh filtration, sediment transport, regional/local climate change, mitigation/adaptation opportunities, local impacts and strategies, and alternative energy. Information about UD program offerings will also be included. The program is administered by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment which facilitates interdisciplinary research, undergraduate and graduate education, and outreach in earth, ocean and environmental systems.
