SHARK WEEK

Our most popular themed week! Join us for a week-long investigation of the ocean’s most feared predators – sharks! Campers delve into the fascinating world of sharks while gaining a better understanding and appreciation for these top predators. Our marine instructors will guide your young scientist through activities focused on shark anatomy and biology, species identification, conservation efforts and more. Each year our Shark Week lessons are updated with current shark related hot topics and headlines. Our older campers will be given the opportunity at the end of the week to participate in a shark dissection guided by our educators (must be at least 10 years old  to participate in the dissection). Please be aware that each themed session repeated multiple weeks will have the same camp lessons, crafts and activities. (For example: Shark Week Sessions 2 & 5).
