Kids wait all year long for school to end and summer to begin, but for parents who can’t take the whole summer off to hang with the kids, it can be stressful to find a reliable place to send them. SeaWorld Orlando’s Day Camps offer unique experiences tailored to campers’ age groups that are both fun AND educational, and with a low counselor-to-camper ratio, you can feel comfortable knowing that your child won’t get lost in the shuffle at the park. Each camp is a week long, from Monday to Friday. Upcoming dates are:
- July 9 – July 13
- July 16 – July 20
- July 23 – July 27
- July 30 – August 3
Preschoolers and a parent or guardian can experience SeaWorld Orlando’s Seafari Sea Camp together from 9 AM – 12 PM. The camp runs from Monday to Friday and offers campers an up-close look at the park’s creatures, take-home crafts, snacks, and other fun activities. Registration for a week at Seafari Sea Camp is $275 per adult/camper pair, and includes a camp t-shirt and water bottle.
Kindergarten – 8th Grade Camps
Kids from kindergarten all the way to 12th grade can choose from exciting summer camps, all offering up-close animal encounters, take home crafts, and fun activities. Unlike the preschool camp these programs are all day long from 9 AM to 3 PM, Monday through Friday. Registration for all camps is $350 per camper and includes a camp t-shirt, water bottle, lunch and snacks every day of the week.
