On top of still being able to experience the fun rides, activities and shows at the park, they will provide a unique insight on the current conservation efforts of SeaWorld, as well as their long term plans.

Most campers are typically from Kindergarten - 8th grade, but there are also teacher camps available as well.

What Days are the SeaWorld Camps Available?

Monday through Friday.

Camp Hours

Types of SeaWorld Camps 

Summer Camps

Summer camps split up campers by relevant ages, in order to provide activities focused by age group and maximize socializing.

For example, first graders will not have the same interests as 8th graders.

SeaWorld does not have an exact description of each camp on their site, but rather a generic one for all of the camps 

Each day campers will visit different animal exhibits in the park. Activities will be focused around those animals. Campers will feed sea lions, interact with animal ambassadors, enjoy a playtime with bottlenose dolphins and help make enrichment items for SeaWorld animals, and touch stingrays and a shark. Campers will also visit Walkabout Waters and select water slides in Aquatica one morning while at camp.
