Get ready for fun in the sun, on the sand, and at the Heal the Bay Aquarium with Summer Science Camp! Let your mini- Marine biologist get wet and wild by the Santa Monica Pier, as they explore shark and sea star touch tanks, learn about local marine life and the importance of conservation from immersive pacific ocean animal exhibits, then enjoy toes-in-the-sand adventures and science experiments on the Santa Monica Beach. Let our fishy friends and expert aquarist help stave off summer learning loss with hands-on experiences that will help shape your little environmentalist’s journey into conservation for years to come.
