Maritime Youth Camp

Maritime Youth Camp

The Maritime Venture Summer Camp offers young people 14 to 17 years old opportunities to explore exciting careers available in the area's thriving maritime industry, and the camp includes an entertaining and educational maritime adventure. Students take a field trip on the Merchant Vessel "Sam Houston" to learn about the Houston Ship Channel.

In class, Maritime Venture campers work together in teams to learn about seamanship. The class also includes guest speakers, such as pilots, captains, and tankermen, so students can hear first-hand accounts from maritime workers.
