UPDATE: Heal the Bay is following all LA County Department of Health guidelines and the “Safer at Home” order in Los Angeles. We will provide updates as new information becomes available. We are currently planning to host our Summer Camp programs, with adjustments to policies and procedures, however that may change if the “Safer at Home” order changes. Contact Kelly with any questions. READ OUR FULL NOTICE

Our Aquarium Science Camp at Heal the Bay Aquarium, located under the Santa Monica Pier, takes campers on an ocean exploration adventure as we bounce from live marine animal and wildlife exhibits, to the classroom, and out to the beach. This summer, Camp will be an exciting week of investigation as our little scientists become Marine Crime Scene Investigators, complete with badges and science investigation kits!

The experience is all fun with just the right amount of hands-on learning. Campers interact with hundreds of local marine species while making new friends. If your kiddo enjoys doing science experiments, playing games, digging for sand crabs, making arts and crafts, and having fun, then dive into camp at Heal the Bay Aquarium (located at 1600 Ocean Front Walk, Santa Monica, CA 90401).

Aquarium Summer Camp

Aquarium Summer Camp is June 22 – July 31, 2020 from 9am – 3pm.

School is out and it’s time for fun in the sun. Our summer camp includes exploration, beach days, interactive play, and… science. We explore our exhibits with over 100 marine species, learn in our classroom using microscopes and virtual technology, and of course spend plenty of time on the beach exploring the beautiful Pacific Ocean and its many habitats and animals. The experience is all fun with just the right amount of learning. Each day focuses on a different ocean topic and campers will make new discoveries while making new friends. If your little scientists loves the ocean, doing experiments, playing games, digging for sand crabs, creating art, and having fun, then dive into camp at Heal the Bay Aquarium.
