Summer Campers Embark on Final Canoeing Adventure at Aquarium Camp

Fort Fisher, North Carolina — Canoeing in local estuaries is part of an unforgettable summer camp experience at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher – it’s a trip from the Basin to Zeke’s Island for a cool plunge into the water. In a weekly tradition, twelve 9- to 11-year-old campers will embark on the canoeing phase of camp on Wednesday, August 10 from 9 a.m. to noon. Even as the Aquarium winds down camp, the focus is on making every moment special and unique for each camper.
“The Aquarium team makes every day an adventure for summer campers. The canoe trips are a favorite part of the week for the children and staff. We want to lead unique experiences that create a connection between campers and nature.” said Andy Gould, Education Curator, NC Aquarium Fort Fisher.
The campers are also exploring how ogres are like oceans this final week. They are taking a deep dive into the four main layers of the ocean to discover the weird and wonderful creatures that live in them. By swimming the waves, experimenting with ocean science, and meeting marine animal ambassadors, campers will explore the ocean from the sunlit surface down to the abyss.
