This winter parents can enroll their children in two winter day camps specially tailored to different age ranges. During the Aquarium’s Sea Squirt Winter Camp and Winter Day Camp, children can explore different animals and regions of the Pacific Ocean.

 

The Aquarium’s Winter Day Camp is for children in grades two through four, and campers must be at least seven years or older. Winter Day Camp will take children on an adventure through the depths of the Pacific Ocean through interactive learning at the Aquarium. Students will be able to learn about marine life through hands-on activities, including games and crafts. Participants will also get the chance to go behind the scenes at the Aquarium, allowing them to see and learn about animal care. They also get to meet animal husbandry staff members and help take care of the animals that call the Aquarium home. Topics for Winter Day Camp include migrations, cold water habitats, and polar bears.

 

For kids age five and six, the Sea Squirt Winter Day Camp provides an introductory course to the life that exists in the Pacific Ocean. Topics cover the lives and the habitats of wiggly fish, furry mammals, and fluffy birds. Aquarium staff will guide campers as they participate in crafts, games, stories, and tours. Sea Squirt Winter Day Camp allows young children to explore, interact, and develop questions independently. Children will be able to touch some of the animals and even conduct experiments.
