SURF CITY — The Town of Surf City has joined forces with Ecological Marine Adventures (EMA) to provide our area with a year round marine science education program. Learning is very hands-on and student driven. EMA invites you to explore Topsail’s beaches and marshes from a unique perspective.

EMA is currently gearing up for Spring 2017. Classes will begin in January and run through June ending just before summer camps start.

A wide variety of classes are available to the public: Homeschool Science, Toddler Science and After School Adventures will be offered in both five and eight week sessions with weekly themes varying to ensure students are actively engaged.

A Flippers and Feathers 5 Day Spring Break Camp will be offered from April 10 to 14, 2016. Camp size is limited so online registration is recommended to reserve your spot. A sibling discount is available.
