Ocean Squad with the Ocean Conservation Trust

October 13 October 27

The Ocean Conservation Trust’s award-winning Ocean Squad programme has been designed to give young people a meaningful connection to the Ocean through fun experiences, inspirational learning and building new friendships with other likeminded young people.

This year we the OCT are expanding their programme to include a whole range of ages from 5-15 year olds, there is something for everyone.

Check out their website (link below) and select the age category for your child’s to find out more information!

Activities such as Behind the Scenes tours, fun games and workshops, dissections and preparing food for the Aquarium animals help to give young people an idea of what is it like to work in Marine Biology. Other activities allow participants to experience the Ocean and have positive benefits to mental health and wellbeing such as snorkelling, virtual reality, rockpooling, and building bonfires on the beach.
