SeaWorld Summer Camp is back and offering hands-on educational animal experiences children will never forget.
There are two types of camp experiences: Day Camps and Resident Camps.
At a day camp, participants learn about a variety of animals, including whales, dolphins, penguins and sea lions. Campers focus on a particular theme throughout the week. Each day they learn about different species through songs, take-home arts and crafts, time with zoological staff, up-close animal encounters and more. Children going into preschool through 8th grade can take part in SeaWorld’s Day Camp. Daily lunch, snacks, a camp T-shirt and water bottle are included.
Resident Camps are created especially for students interested in potential careers with animals. They provide extensive experiences and hands on learning. Students going in to 7th-12th grade learn what it takes to train and work with marine animals. Sessions include personal one-on-one time with a penguin and other animals, the chance to snorkel while submerged in a shark cage, opportunities to work with the animal care staff and the ability to help SeaWorld’s team create enriching environments for the animals. Residents also get to experience a full day at Discovery Cove, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with tropical fish and rays, and feeding exotic birds in a free-flight aviary. Resident Camp fee includes all camp activities, lodging onsite at SeaWorld and at a partner hotel for five nights, all meals and snacks. Supervision and guidance is provided 24 hours a day for the entire duration. Resident Camps are so popular, many campers fly in from around the country; these campers receive transportation to and from the Orlando International Airport by the dedicated camp staff to start their camp experience.
Prices for Day Camp start at $350 for one week; Resident Camp pricing starts at $1200 for one week. After camp care is also available from 3 to 5 p.m. for an extra fee. Parents are able to register their children online at SeaWorldCamps.com/Orlando or by calling 407-545-5550.
