Aquarium Camps

 

The Aquarium offers day camps throughout the year. Summer camps are our most popular but we also offer spring and winter sessions.
Participants enjoy outdoor explorations such as hikes on the nature trail. Indoors, the action continues as campers tour the Aquarium, go behind the scenes for animal encounters and feedings, talk with aquarists about animal care, and join in other fun and educational activities.

The North Carolina Aquariums will not offer on-site, week-long Aquarium Summer Camps for 2020, due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19. We will be hosting virtual summer camps. See below for details.

SUMMER CAMP 2020

Virtual summer camps with N.C. Aquariums and the pier

In this new virtual camp, campers will receive a program kit and have the opportunity to virtually travel along the North Carolina coast to all four North Carolina Aquarium sites - Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores, Roanoke Island, and Jennette’s Pier - where they will meet animals and meet the staff that make each location special!

Virtual week-long camp opportunities will be limited to 15 campers per session, with sessions planned for June, July and August. Morning sessions will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for rising Grades 3-5, while afternoon sessions will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for rising Grades 6-8.
