Your application will be acknowledged upon receipt. You will be advised about acceptance in the program as soon as possible after the deadline (September 22 for Cape May and Fall). In the meantime, we suggest you make bus reservations and arrangements and receive the necessary school permission or approval.



The program and all materials are free.  To ensure a commitment from your school, a refundable deposit of $100 is required with your application.  The deposit will be returned to you upon submission of the Post-Summit teacher and student evaluation forms.  The deposit will be cashed and used as a donation toward the Student Summit program if the post-Summit teacher and student evaluation forms are not returned by the deadline as stated in the application. Transportation and lunch must be provided by participants.



Appropriate outerwear is mandatory.  Coastal locations are usually cold and windy.  Advise the students to dress according to the weather, bring additional layers of clothes, and wear sneakers or hiking shoes.  Clean Ocean Action reserves the right to exclude or limit participation to anyone whose dress is inappropriate. In the case of extreme and dangerous weather, the Student Summit will be cancelled. Otherwise the event is held outdoors, rain or shine.



On the date of the Student Summit, participants will be required to comply with all applicable COVID measures recommended by the CDC and all such requirements imposed by the State of NJ.
