Aquarist Camp Session 1
June 22, 2015 @ 8:30 am - June 26, 2015 @ 3:30 pm
Get ready for a week of hands-on animal care to experience what it’s like to work behind the scenes at the Aquarium. Help feed the fish in the Aquarium’s shark tank, make veggie “meatballs” for the box turtles, design treats for the river otters, and raise live zooplankton to feed to some of our smaller residents. See how the Aquarium gets our animals as we go on a collecting trip, bring back juvenile fish, and set up a fish tank for our new inhabitants. Compare the similarities and differences between sharks and bony fish during immersive dissections. A portion of each day will be spent behind the scenes, so roll up your sleeves and prepare to get a little dirty!
Closed toe shoes and a bag lunch are required. Ages: 10-14 $220.00 per Camper
$198.00 for NC Aquarium Society Members
