2020 Summer Day Camps
***In compliance with public facility closures and due to social distancing measures, we are not able to offer our planned schedule of summer camps as we have previously offered. We are looking at innovative alternative opportunities for youth summer activities, and we will announce them as they are finalized. Until then, check out our Community Resources page or social media accounts to stay up to date with your favorite Aquarium friends.***
Ages: Camps are offered for ages 6-15. To participate, a camper must meet the specified age requirement by the time a camp begins.
Activities: Virginia Aquarium camps focus primarily on marine science, but also include other science and nature topics. Camp activities are developed and conducted by the Aquarium's educators and emphasize experiential learning through animal interactions, outdoor investigations, and hands-on activities. See below for the different activities offered for each age-specific camp.
