Greater Cleveland Aquarium Summer Camp

All aboard for an aquatic adventure in your own backyard. Encounter all of the animals the aquarium has to offer, and then some. Campers go fishing and explore Ohio fish in their native habitat at Cleveland Metroparks CanalWay Center, take a boat ride on the Nautica Queen to explore the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie, meet an aquarium diver, feed our animals, and make fishy crafts. At the end of the week campers take their parents on a tour of the aquarium and wow them with all they’ve discovered on their week-long exploration. End each day’s adventure with an animal feeding demonstration!
