Since its inception in 1996, YouthNet has worked to unlock the potential in Bermuda's youth; The school-based mentoring programme seeks to align the strengths of these young people (mentees) with the strengths of adults and peers (mentors) in a positive and nurturing environment; promoting opportunities for young people to thrive through positive relationships. YouthNet provides a continuum of support to any child who should want one, helping to ensure that their lives are positively impacted.
Ocean Science Camp is geared towards students aged 12-15 that are interested in the ocean, but may not have had previous opportunities to study marine science. This camp offers an introduction to the marine life of Bermuda and provides a scientific foundation to kick-start student curiosity in the sciences. Students will learn about Bermuda’s ecosystems, food webs, productivity of the ocean, the plants and animals on our reefs, current events in marine biology and much more.
Our mission is to provide a unique experiential education opportunity for campers who are genuinely interested in learning about the marine environment. Through this 1-week program students participate in snorkel training, boating, and research-based field trips. Students will work as a team during group activities and projects that are centered on BIOS’s scientific research. This 1-week camp will be snorkel based but will include a PADI Discover Scuba (DSD) experience in which students can practice taking their first breaths underwater.
