accommodations and recreation at AIO marine science camp

AIO is housed in the vintage 1931 Dunham Schoolhouse, built by John D. Rockefeller as a gift to the village of Seal Harbor. A classic American red brick schoolhouse, the building has been carefully restored and updated to offer clean and comfortable accommodations. Three of the large classrooms have been converted into open dormitories and students sleep on bunk beds. The schoolhouse also includes a lecture hall, recreation room, a research wet laboratory, library, director's office, nurse's office, dining room, bathrooms, and showers.


The academic schedule is designed to allow time each day for recreational activities such as hiking in Acadia National Park, swimming, group games, and visits to local laboratories and museums. And there is plenty of free time to read, write letters, socialize, and relax.
