Spring Break Campers Delight in Animals and More

Girl petting gatorSpring Break Camp at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher is an odyssey into a world of discovery and adventure that keeps young campers at the edge of their seats and on the tips of their toes from March 28-April 1. Eleven campers ages 5-12 are encountering baby alligators and rat snakes, peeking in on the Asian small-clawed otters and gazing into tanks filled with beautiful sea life. They are curious, excited, and eager to share their knowledge about the animals they are experiencing at the Aquarium.

“It’s exciting to welcome these campers and share encounters with animals that elicit curiosity and create greater awareness about their role in our ecosystem. It is wonderful to see their appreciation for our ambassador animals,” said Nate Kanuck, environmental educator, NC Aquarium Fort Fisher.

 These AquaCamps feature a new adventure every day. Day one is aquatic critters, with the next four days featuring surviving in the wild, reptiles and amphibians, top predators and the final camp, incredible invertebrates. The cost per day is $36 for North Carolina Aquarium Society members and $40 for non-members. There are a few spots available. All the camps run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. To find out more or register for the camps, visit NCA Fort Fisher AquaCamps. To become a member, visit NC Aquarium Society.
