Camp SEA Lab


Camp SEA Lab fosters lifelong excitement, scientific understanding, and stewardship of our coasts and ocean by providing high quality marine science education programs for youth in Monterey Bay.

The Big Idea

Camp SEA Lab provides high-quality marine science education programs to youth on the Monterey Bay, helping them connect to the essential ecosystem in their backyard. To continue fostering lifelong excitement, scientific understanding and stewardship of our coasts and ocean, Camp SEA Lab’s Big Idea will help this nonprofit make big steps toward its post-pandemic future. This nonprofit is seeking funds for a new office, a van, and to pay for full-time staff hours.

I want to thank you and the whole team for camp this week. Both [of my daughters] felt like this week was the happiest they have been for the past year. What you do really matters, thank you so much.

- Matthew Kyler

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
