CAUSE 30th Anniversary

The Community And Urban Science Enrichment program is celebrating its 30th year. CAUSE is dedicated to celebrating the energy and creativity that Camden City teens bring to the mission of the Center while empowering them to become environmental and educational leaders in the community.
Our Mission
We believe that investing in young people, strengthening their connection to nature, and positioning them for success is our best hope for creating a better world for future generations. Our location at the confluence of the Cooper and Delaware Rivers and our long-standing partnership with Adventure Aquarium gives us a deep appreciation of the importance of water as a life-giving resource and the urgency of protecting aquatic life and habitats. We are committed to the Camden community and supporting our neighbors in their efforts to increase residents’ access to natural spaces and public waterways and advocate for environmental justice.

We offer so many ways to extend your adventure at Adventure Aquarium! Spend the night at one of our Shark in the Dark overnight experiences or spend a week at one of our Summer Sea Camps…

Evening for the Environment

In 2023, we are celebrating our Community and Urban Science Enrichment (CAUSE) program’s 30th anniversary with events to come. Starting in 1993, CAUSE has served about 200 students who have gone on to pursue their careers and passions. CAUSE empowers teens through science content training and skill-building workshops, that will enable them to design and deliver engaging, accessible science programming to Camden students and families.
