      Our Dozing with Dolphins program is one of a kind overnight camp full of education and fun! It was designed by an Eagle Scout with younger scouts in mind, this program is perfect for any scout group as well as any group!
      Your adventure begins with an introduction to our IMMS facility and our history here on the Gulf Coast. Next, you’re off to our Discovery Room where you will be able to get up close and personal with some of our resident animals in our three touch pools. Here you will get to meet Sea Stars, Horseshoe Crabs, a Stingray, and many more! You will even meet one of our resident reptiles!
      From there you will be guided over to our classroom where the kids will get to design their own t-shirts! They will design them by using sand paper and crayons. Once you have finished there, it is back to the auditorium where the educator will let your group “run off some energy” as they race to save a dolphin’s life in our Rescue Relay activity! This activity teaches them how important teamwork and communication is, especially for our stranding and rescue team when it comes to rescuing marine animals!
      Once the group has burned off that energy, you will be then guided to the museum. Here your group will be able to explore the various exhibits and learn from them including our touch screens that are filled with educational games! Lastly, the group will get a chance to dig for their very own Shark’s tooth from our Fossil Dig! The educator will identify this tooth and place it on a card for each guest to take home!
      Your night ends with a movie and popcorn in the auditorium!
      The next morning, after wake-up, the educators will provide breakfast from our very own Turtle Café. After that, it is off to the Dolphin pool where you will get a close view of our dolphins’ training session, followed by our Sea Lion Show!

      Because we have to pay for 20 participants, refunds aren't available unless we exceed the minimum.

      The goal of Ozanam Inn is to offer aid and comfort to the poor and needy in our community by providing basic human needs such as; food, shelter and clothing. This field trip is not for everyone but it is a great experience for our children to practically help the homeless and touch those in need. 

      We will be volunteering during lunch time where older children will be able to serve hot meals and younger children will be able to serve cups of water. We will also learn more about the functions of Ozanam Inn and lastly pass out snack bags.

      If you've already volunteered here, wait a week to sign up to give new members a chance to volunteer.

      Please fill 15 snack size zip lock bags per attendee (including adults) with hard candy, jerky, or packs of peanut butter or cheese crackers to pass out to residents after lunch. 

      There is a max of 20 persons total (adults and students) and all children must be at least 5 years old. No babies are allowed. Because of the limited number of volunteers, only one adult per family is allowed. Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to park and assist with lunch set-up.

        Sharing Shakespeare with a new generation

        In January of each year the Festival stages a full-length professional production of one of Shakespeare’s plays, performed on Tulane’s campus as a field trip opportunity for middle and high school students. These performances are often the only opportunity students have to see live professional theatre and, more often, their first live Shakespearean performance.

        Tickets are only $10 per student, and one free chaperone ticket is provided for every fifteen students. Additional chaperones pay only $10.

        “Something wicked this way comes.”

        In a country torn by war, Macbeth and his steadfast wife execute a ruthless plan that launches a string of murders. But fate is an unwavering force in this world of witches and prophecy. Director Jessica Podewell brings a stalwart and engaging concept to this revered tragedy.

        Tickets must be purchased early December, so you have until the end of November to reserve your spot.
