Fort Fisher Summer Camps

Outdoor adventure. Environmental education. Friends. 

Knowledgeable, trained staff lead activities and engage campers in learning and fun. Camps run simultaneously for ages 5-6, 7-8 and 9-11. The Aquarium also offers several weeks of camp for ages 12-14 and an all new camp, Green Teen, for ages 14-16.


Campers, ages 5 to 6, explore weekly topics through animal interaction, play, storytelling, crafts and hands-on outdoor activities.


Campers, ages 7 to 8, use investigative skills during animal programs, outdoor excursions and interactive games to better understand nature.


Campers, ages 9 to 11, venture outdoors and behind the scenes at the Aquarium to expand their understanding of animal habitats, adaptations and care.


Campers, ages 12 to 14, trek to different coastal environments and engage in activities from snorkeling to surf fishing to better value and preserve these important habitats. These campers also interact more directly with staff behind the scenes to assist with animal care.
