Huntsman & Partner Youth
S.T.E.A.M. Summer Camps

Huntsman is incredibly proud to occupy a leadership role to provide learning opportunities to youth who live in or are visiting southwest New Brunswick across a broad range of S.T.E.A.M. topics. We do so by offering our own Young Explorer Day/Week programs with a focus on marine biology in the Bay of Fundy while also hosting engaging third party S.T.E.A.M. camps that use Huntsman facilities to benefit local students. Huntsman Marine Members further benefit by receiving registration discounts to attend all of these camps!

Young Explorer Days & Weeks


Sharks, whales, seals or sea stars… matter what your Young Explorer (5-11 years old) is passionate about, there’s a marine experience waiting at the Huntsman that is sure to surprise and delight! Young Explorer Days & Weeks include interactions with live animals, possible beach exploration, educational games, experiments, themed activities, crafts, and time to explore the Fundy Discovery Aquarium.

Indigenous Youth Ocean-based Learning Program 

We are thrilled to partner with Ulnooweg Education Centre to offer a portion of their Indigenous youth (ages 15-18) ocean-based learning program this summer in St. Andrews by-the-Sea!
Ocean-loving, marine-minded, adventure-seeking Indigenous youth are encouraged to come and experience a 10-day ocean-based learning program. Enjoy fun-filled days exploring coastal waters and soaking up STEAM activities at Huntsman Marine followed by snorkeling adventures through breathtaking eel-grass meadows on the white sand beaches of Mi’kma’ki’s south shore and sea-kayaking around the LaHave Islands.

Snapology Weeks


Students ages 7-12 will participate in S.T.E.A.M. activities with plenty of brain breaks to keep their interest and attention in these awesome and (shh…) educational camps. They will explore themed activities using LEGO Bricks and other interactive tools to create, build, and invent.

Week Long Programs

Land and Sea


Offered in partnership between Nature’s Backpack Land-Based Learning Centre and the Huntsman Marine Science Centre for ages 12-14. In this program, we will take a closer look at the creatures and plants that live on the land and in the sea. The morning will start off at the Upper Campus of the Huntsman Marine Science Centre where we explore various “Land” habitats, and we’ll end the day at the Fundy Discovery Aquarium where we will explore the beach and take a detailed look at some of our discoveries in the lab.


We will ask many questions that start with, “Why?”

“Why do plants grow here, and why do crabs live there?”


We will explore and immerse ourselves in various outdoor environments in a safe, inquisitive, and respectful manner, while learning outdoor skills, learning about nature and ecology, and building awareness of our place within it.
