SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN
UPDATE: This summer at Heal the Bay Aquarium, we are offering a virtual camp experience and cancelling in-person camp. Contact Kelly with any questions. READ OUR FULL NOTICE. Our Aquarium team is following the Safer at Home order, as well as the CDC and LA County Department of Public Health guidelines for how to remain safe and reduce risk. Even though, just this week the City of Los Angeles announced that day camps can reopen, the restrictions and guidelines would hinder our fully interactive camp experience, and still does not fully remove health risks. The health and safety of our staff, campers, and community continues to be our number one priority.
*If you are registering multiple siblings, or are selecting the Shipping Option for your camper’s activity box, please select the appropriate add-ons when choosing a virtual camp week to attend.
(Register here if you are experiencing issues with the form above.)
Aquarium Summer Camp
Summer camps offer great new experiences that your children look forward to, and we understand this year will bring unexpected challenges for families as many in-person activities remain limited.
The good news is, we have been hard at work designing an exciting and enriching new virtual Heal the Bay Aquarium Science Camp program with distance learning, wildlife exploration, and fun in mind. Our new virtual camp days are packed with animal exploration, hands-on science experiments, live demonstrations, and more.
When designing our new virtual science camp, we are keeping these factors in mind:
- Give campers an alternative to video games, TV, and movies
- Offer parents a much-needed break from creating new activities to entertain children
- Provide campers the opportunity to connect and socialize in a safe environment
- Educate campers with marine science activities and lessons from our team of experts
- Inspire campers with exclusive access to animal exhibits and demonstrations
- Allow families to keep the excitement and thrill of summer camp alive
Now, more than ever, it’s important to provide experiences that children can look forward to. We know our new virtual summer camp will be an experience your family will love!
