Summer vacation is just a couple of months away and many parents are already looking for exciting ways to keep their children learning and having fun all summer.
Summer Camp 2019 at Miami Seaquarium is a unique experience for kids to learn about marine life while also having a blast with hands-on animal interactions, watching one of a kind live dolphin, sea lion and killer whale shows, and participating in classic summer camp games and crafts.
To top it off, this year’s camp features the stunning, limited time exhibit, “Savage Ancient Seas.” Savage Ancient Seas displays lifesize replicas of ancient sea animals alongside actual fossils from the days of the dinosaurs.
This year’s camp will run from June 10 to Aug. 16 for campers ages 5 to 15 years old. Camp activities will be focused on the following themes “Marine Mysteries,” “Seaside Superheros,” “Ocean Olympics,” “Tide Pool Travels” and “Dinosaur Detectives.”
Miami Seaquarium Summer Camp also offers the Counselor-in-Training program (CIT) to 15-year-old campers. The CIT program includes all the fun with the additional bonus of leadership opportunities for campers hoping to become counselors in the future or just looking to get some leadership experience under their belt.
