Ocean Explorers Camps

About Our Ocean Explores Camp

Focused on problem solving, design thinking and innovation, your maker will learn how to take their ideas and turn them into real creations. They will also build lifelong skills in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM), all with a unique marine conservation focus only at the Vancouver Aquarium.

This unique experience will help make the concept of conservation real, as your little marine biologist will learn everything there is to know about marine preservation and the role they can play in building a sustainable world.

Don’t miss this aquatic adventure! Visit MiniMakers to learn more about the camp options offered and register for Ocean Explorers Camp before space runs out.
