Summer Camp 2020 Update

We want to thank everyone for their continued support of The Florida Aquarium and our summer programs. These past few weeks have been difficult for everyone, and support from the community means a lot. 

The camp leadership team has spent many hours working through summer camp planning and potential accommodations, with an abundance of caution and the safety of the campers and staff as our utmost priority.  While we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel our AquaTots, travel, and scuba camps due to the unique aspects of these camps (which exceed recommended group capacities or are field-trip based), we have modified our summer 2020 plans to safely run on-location camps utilizing the guidance provided by State and CDC resources.  We are confident that these changes provide for the safety and protection of both staff and campers. 

Read the new guidelines for the 2020 summer camp season. 

We will continue to monitor guidelines and make adjustments to our camps as needed.  Please call 813-273-4015 or email to inquire about any possible camp openings or changes.


Summer Camps


Summer camp themes are for ages 3-18 and are centered around animals and the natural environment. The goal of each summer is to provide campers with an amazing, educational experience by incorporating themes that focus on environmental science topics and feature up-close animal encounters and plenty of hands-on learning.
