In 1993, Seacamp Association, Inc., applied for and received a SABIT grant.
Under the auspices of this program, scientists and managers from camps and environmental centers travel to Seacamp for periods of three to four months to learn how to operate successful camp programs with a marine science focus in a market economy.
Seacamp received its first SABIT grant in December 1993.
Seven Russian groups, organized and accompanied by SABIT interns, have participated in the summer and schools' programs of Seacamp. In the summer of 2003, the Foundation for the Advancement of Camping Industry, Youth Health Development, Recreation, and Out-of-School Activities "Roads to Discovery" was set up in Moscow by seven Seacamp SABIT interns.
