Throughout the week, teen campers hit the beach, go crabbing in the salt marsh, tour behind the scenes of the Aquarium, canoe at Holly Shelter, conduct underwater archaeology at Fort Fisher Historical Site, visit the Sea Turtle Hospital in Topsail Beach, and try out surfing.
Space is also available for Aquarium summer camps for ages 5-12 with various dates and themes. For example, Sensational Senses camps focus on discovering how animals use their senses to survive. Humans explore the world using five senses. Animals share some of these, and have developed some of their own. By meeting and observing animals at the Aquarium, and in surrounding habitats, younger campers discover how their senses help animals survive.
