Winter Marine Activities!
Parents can enroll their children in three winter day camps specially tailored to different age ranges during Aquarium of the Pacific’s Sea Squirt Winter Camp, Winter Day Camp, and Winter Teen Overnight.
Children ages five to twelve have the opportunity to explore different animals and regions of the Pacific Ocean.
For kids ages 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 members will guide campers as they participate in crafts, games, and tours. Sea Squirt Winter Day Camp allows young children to explore, interact, and develop questions independently. Children will be able to touch the animals in the private classroom touch pool.
“Day Camp will take children on a wondrous adventure into the depths of the Pacific Ocean through interactive learning at the Aquarium. Students will be able to explore marine life through hands-on activities, including games and crafts,” said staff at the aquarium.
Other activities include a behind-the-scenes tour, meeting animal care staff members, and helping take care of the animals that call the Aquarium home. Topics for Winter Day Camp include migrations, cold-water habitats, and polar bears.
Teens can dive deep and enjoy a night sleeping with the fishes in this teens-only event. Start the night with a pizza party before becoming an ocean explorer to discover the mysteries of the deep sea. This overnight camp program includes Aquarium exploration, hands-on activities, pizza party, light snack, cereal breakfast, and a souvenir T-shirt.
