Natural science studies for Milford and surrounding Connecticut towns in conjunction with the Milford Recreation Department
The Milford Marine Marine Institute was incorporated in 1983 to offer environmental studies related to Milford, Connecticut’s unique coastal and riverine environment. Thousands of young people, their parents, and other adults have taken advantage of our programs over the past 30 years. Click here for the schedule for our anniversary year.
Most camp sessions are held in the Marine Institute building on Gulf Pond in Milford. Some sessions, particularly during Marine Biology camp, take place in the City of Milford’s Tri-Beach neighborhood center, which is located directly across the street from one of the city’s sandy beaches. In addition, field trips form a part of every camp week.
