Kure Beach, NC - Are you wondering what your kids are going to do for this summer? The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher has a great idea: summer camp!

Aquarium summer camps provide fun and safe learning opportunities with knowledgeable and competent leadership. Camps run simultaneously for ages 5-6 or Aquanauts, 7-9 or Marine Detectives, 10-12 or Ocean Explorers and 13-14 or Coastal Crusaders.

Diverse summer camps themes include:
* Sensational Senses: campers discover how their senses help animals survive.
* Circles of Life: campers discover how animals are born, reproduce, and return their resources to the planet.
* Junior Naturalist: campers learn basic observation skills and gain an appreciation of what nature has to offer.
* Animal Keepers: Campers get a glimpse of the work required to provide proper animal care.
* Coastal Crusaders: Campers gain a better understanding of how to investigate and preserve the environment we all share.

Summer camp fees for Aquanauts, Marine Detectives, and Ocean Explorers are $180 for NC Aquarium Society members or multiple- siblings and $200 for individual campers. Coastal Crusaders is $225 for NC Aquarium Society members or multiple- siblings and $250 for individual campers.
