What do you get when you merge science exploration and hands-on fun? Find out this summer at Camp Aqua at Shreveport Aquarium. Campers will discover the wonders of the ocean, experience up close animal encounters and go behind the scenes to get up close and personal with sharks, eels, and a host of other sea creatures.
The aquarium will offer three different camps this summer including full-day camps for 6 – 11 year olds and and half-day camps for 4 – 7 year olds.
June 5 – 9, 9 a.m. – Noon; June 12-16, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Take a dive into the ocean and learn how different marine creatures construct their underwater homes. Campers will take on the role of digger, builder and designer, and with interactive games and activities, they will have a blast acting like their favorite sea creatures, all while gaining a deeper understanding of the ocean world.
June 19-23, 9 a.m. – Noon; June 26-30, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Track sharks, create recycled art and conduct scientific experiments in this ultimate camp for conservation heroes! Using creativity and problem-solving skills campers will help conservationists confront real-world problems by designing, building and testing their own ocean prototypes to help marine life!
July 10-14, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Dive into the deep blue and discover the incredible adaptations of our ocean pals. From speedy swordfish to camouflaging octopuses, campers will use their wild imaginations to explore ways to protect ocean habitats with animal-inspired solutions.
“Shreveport Aquarium is a great resource for ocean education and conservation,” say Karen Whitehead, Marketing Director. “It is our goal to introduce people of all ages to the wonders of aquatic life to spark compassion and curiosity for conservation and sustainability. Campers are not only going to have a blast in our program, but they are going to learn about things they can do that will have a positive impact on our planet and will be empowered to work toward building a more sustainable future.”
Half-day summer camps are $140 for the week and full-day camps are $240 for the week and includes a t-shirt and snack. There is a discount for siblings and aquarium members.
