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.
Registration is ONLINE ONLY. Registration opens April 1.
Camps fill up quickly-be ready! Go to the program registration section of the website and create a member profile in advance.
Summer day camps combine fun and learning with hands-on, feet-wet experiences for children and youths entering grades K-8. The fee is $270 per camper; member discount applies. Payment is due in full at the time the reservation is placed. Reservations are taken online only; no phone reservations will be processed. All camps run: Monday - Friday
