VOLUNTEER UPDATE: It is with tremendous sadness that we announce that LBMI will unfortunately be unable to accept volunteer assistance this year. After reviewing suggested guidelines from the CDC in the event that camps are allowed to re-open, our program will require significant modifications that will prevent us from accommodating our volunteer staff. This was an incredibly difficult decision for us, as our counselors are vital to our program. Please know that each and every one of you is important to the success of OAC. This is a temporary situation and we will look forward to seeing you all next summer. If circumstances change within the next month we will be sure to keep you updated. In the meantime, we hope you all have a fun, safe, and relaxing summer. Please contact Emily Wood at emily@longbeachmarine.org with any questions. 



Looking for a fun way to spend your summer? Come and join Long Beach Marine Institute’s Summer Volunteer Program! We are looking for fun, hard-working, dedicated young people who would like to help out with our summer day camp. Ocean Adventure Camp runs for nine weeks from June 15 – August 14, and teaches young kids marine science in a fun and exciting way. If you enjoy working with kids, like water activities, have experience working with boats/sailing, or are looking for ways to fulfill high school/college volunteer requirements, look no further! Our volunteer program offers a unique opportunity to meet new people, develop leadership skills and gain valuable work experience. We’ve had a lot of fun the last couple years, and are looking forward to another great summer!
