Camps, Clubs & Youth

Explore marine life

Sign up your children for one of our programs and they’ll have unforgettable experiences while learning about marine life.

Please note: After September 7, 2020, the Aquarium will pause all on-site public programming and temporarily close to the public while we focus on transforming the Vancouver Aquarium to a new model that is financially sustainable in the long-term and accelerates our mission of ocean conservation. This temporary closure impacts all Vancouver Aquarium and Ocean Wise educational programming that normally takes place at the Vancouver Aquarium. We look forward to welcoming back students, teachers, parents and all life-long learners when the Aquarium’s reinvention is complete. In order to continue our important work, the Ocean Wise Education team has further shifted programming online to accommodate our new learning reality. We encourage you to visit Online Ocean to learn more about all our virtual offerings.

Exploring marine life through wonder, discovery, and action

Note: The Vancouver Aquarium will be temporarily closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and all programming will be cancelled until reopening as a preventative measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through our community. 

 

Sign up your children for one of our programs and they’ll have an unforgettable experience while learning about marine life. Our programs will allow our children and youth to explore the aquatic world through hands on activities and face to face encounters with sea creatures. Many of the lessons they will learn will also support what they are learning in school. Encourage your child to have an exciting and educational experience of a lifetime.
