If you have a budding marine biologist in your family, Tybee Island has a camp for you to check out.

Sea Camp, at the Tybee Island Marine Science Center, is 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, starting May 31. If that seems like a long commute from Atlanta each day, why not check in to a nearby hotel or Airbnb and enjoy yourself while the kids are learning about animals native to Coastal Georgia?
