Dolphin Kids

Florida Keys Summer Camp (ages 6-10)

Dolphin Kids is our weeklong marine science summer camp for kids ages 6 -10, hosted at our beautiful bayside facility in the Florida Keys. Campers learn about all sorts of subjects, from local ecosystem ecology to dolphin communication and behavior. Best of all, our dolphin camp makes learning fun through hands-on science activities, marine mammal lessons and shows, behind the scenes tours, and coastal exploration!  

Your kids will learn cool stuff like how dolphins use sonar to investigate fish guts. They’ll discover how blubber works. They’ll learn which is smarter, a dolphin or a squid?  And they’ll learn how we can help protect our gentle giants, the endangered Florida Manatee.

Why send your kids to a regular summer camp, when you can send them to a dolphin camp in Key Largo for a summer they’ll never forget?
