Ripley’s Aquarium offers a wide variety of camp programs, ranging from half-day programs to overnight camps! All camps include educational opportunities and tons of fun for participants!



Be yourself unless you can be a mermaid! In this camp you won’t need your shoes for long because mermaids don’t have feet! We will begin camp at Ripley’s Aquarium where you will create your magical mermaid name, a mermaid treasure, and even meet a REAL MERMAID! We will then travel to our enchanted pool where you will lose your legs and become a mermaid! We will then learn mermaid tricks and play mermaid games, all while having a tail. When the enchantment wears off, you will receive a pin honoring your mermaid transformation!
