Summer Sea Camp 2015

There’s no better way to learn about the ocean than to explore it. There’s no better way to appreciate the animals that live there than to know them. There’s no better way to protect the world’s oceans than to love them.

And there’s no better way to learn to love the oceans than to be a Sea Camper!

Join the Center for Aquatic Sciences at Adventure Aquarium for one of our “shark-tastic” summer camp experiences! This year, children will have the opportunity to become shark scientists while exploring Adventure Aquarium. From ancient Megalodon to the Great White, we'll learn about sharks and other ocean animals that call the ocean home.

Sea Camp: Campers aged 6 - 12

Sink your teeth into the Summer of Sharks and join us as we explore the Ocean's top predator! Field trips, hands on activities, crafts, games, a 4D Theater Show, up-close animal encounters, as well as behind the scenes and exhibit tours at Adventure Aquarium will give your child a summer experience they won’t soon forget!

Time: 9am – 3:30pm. 

Afternoon snack is provided, but campers must bring their own lunches.

Campers can sign up for one or both weeks.

Week 1 - Fin-tastic Sharks!
July 6 - 10, 2015
Do sharks really eat license plates and attack helicopters, or do they just get a bad reputation thanks to movies like Jaws? Join us as we expplore the myths and fears that surround this often misunderstood, but totally cool, creature!


Week 2 - Hammerhead Time!
July 13 - 17, 2015
From hammer shaped heads to flattened bodies to the shapes of their teeth, sharks have amazing adaptations they help them survive in our oceans. Explore different shark species, and learn how and why these awesome fish evolved into the top predators in our oceans today.
