Those lazy days of summer may seem distant, but our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium staff is already preparing an exciting camp season so that families may never face the oft-heard summertime lament: “I’m bored!”
Science Adventures Camp at the Aquarium provides four fun-filled weeks with the fishes – and eels, sea stars, sea horses and jellies – plus way too many other species local to the Santa Monica Bay to name. It’s a marine science learning experience chock full of games, crafts and laboratory practices, with different marine-themed topics explored each day. Do you have a whale lover in your family? There's a day devoted to the gentle giants of the ocean. "Toothy Tuesday" is designed for campers to chomp away at the myths and misconseptions surrounding sharks.
Online registration opens Friday, Feb. 14, at 9 a.m. Register campers for a week - or sign up for multiple weeks. Camp weeks are: June 23-27th (kindergarten through 2nd grade); July 7 - 11th (kindergarten through 2nd grade); July 14th-18th (1st - 3rd grades); and July 21st-25th (2nd - 4th grade). Please sign up campers based on the grade they will be entering in the fall of 2014. Need-based scholarships and partial scholarships are available by filling out an application to be considered for this opportunity .
Beginning its third year, Science Adventures camp has grown tremendously in popularity. To avoid disappointment, sign up your budding marine biologists early! You can register here.
