Summer Marine Science Program

Parents/Guardians,

Pre-applications for the summer Marine Science Program were sent to all elementary and middle schools in the district to be passed out during the week of February 23rd. However, if your child did not receive a pre-application, they may still apply. You can download a pre-application, get all parent information, and view a video of the program by going to the Gamble Rogers Middle School website and clicking on the Marine Science link. Any questions can be answered by emailing John Gordon at john.gordon@stjohns.k12.fl.us.

This summer program is available to all students currently in grades five through eight and has been sponsored by the school district since 1982. All instructors in the program are St. Johns County School District teachers.

Three 8 day sessions are held at Gamble Rogers Middle School School with bus transportation provided. The three sessions are June 8th to June 18th, June 22nd to July 2nd, and July 6th  to July 16th. Small classes of 12 – 14 students are separated by grade level.

The Marine Science Program is a carefully designed experience for responsible students who are interested in learning about our local marine environments. Learning is “hands on” in the field. Students access various marine environments while kayaking, canoeing, boating, hiking, biking, snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, and SUP’s (stand up paddle-boards).

If your child is selected for the program, a final application form will be mailed out from the district office in April.
