SeaWorld Campers Meet a Magellanic Penguin Hi Res

Kids of all ages are invited for educational, fun and exciting encounters including up-close experiences with marine animals during SeaWorld Camps.

Campers will learn about the wonders of the sea through up-close animal discoveries, exclusive behind-the-scenes opportunities and attractions, rides and shows. The opportunities campers receive are unequaled – first-hand experiences with veterinarians, animal trainers and animal care staff.

SeaWorld Camps not only allow children to surround themselves with aquatic life and education, but they are also about making friends, having fun, exploring the great outdoors, riding world-class coasters and creating lifelong memories.

SeaWorld Camps offer a learning environment that fosters exploration, inquiry, self-discovery and self-esteem with two offerings: traditional Day Camps and “sleep-away” Resident Camps.

· Day Camps: During their particular week at SeaWorld Camp, participants learn about a variety of animals, including whales, dolphins, penguins and sea lions. Campers will focus on a different animal each day and learn about them through songs, take-home arts and crafts, as well as by talking with our zoological staff. Day Camps are offered for children going into preschool through 8th grade. Lunch, snacks, a camp T-shirt and water bottle are included.

· Resident “Sleep-away” Camps: Make it a summer to remember for students going into 7-12th grade with a Career Camp. Campers experience what it takes to train and work with marine animals and have the opportunity to touch a penguin, snorkel in a shark cage, work with the animal care staff and create an enriching environment for our animals. Plus, participants have the opportunity to spend a day at Discovery Cove swimming with dolphins, snorkeling with tropical fish and rays and feeding exotic birds in a free-flight aviary. Resident Camp fees include all camp activities, lodging onsite at SeaWorld and at our partner hotel for five nights, plus all meals and snacks. Supervision and guidance is provided 24 hours a day for the entire duration. Many campers fly in from around the country, and the dedicated camp staff picks them up at Orlando International Airport and brings them to SeaWorld to start their camp experience.

For nearly 25 years, SeaWorld has provided safe, fun and educational camp experiences for kids of all ages in the not-so-traditional setting of a world-class theme park. In the last 10 years, more than 250,000 youth have attended a SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Camp. For more information, visit SeaWorldCamps.com/Orlando, or call 1-800-406-2244.
