Classes and Camps

Been meaning to explore your local ecosystem? Want to spend some quality time with some Chesapeake Bay residents? Looking for something to do this summer? You’re in luck! The Glen Echo Park Aquarium is offering summer camps for children ages 4-12 starting June 5th and spring break camps April 10th through the 14th!

Each day of spring break is dedicated to a different ocean theme! Offerings include, sharks and rays, whales and dolphins, deep sea creatures, Chesapeake stars, and jellies and other squishy critters! Camps will run 9am – 12pm.

This summer we’ll explore the park, including the Minnihaha Creek, learn about some of the Chesapeake Bay’s most important sea creatures, and discover how observation and scientific thinking can help us
understand the world around us. Campers are encouraged to explore, observe, and learn!

Children will explore the park and creek, handle live sea creatures, and explore the natural world through games, crafts, and observation!
