Ocean Quest

About the Program

Campers will experience first-hand how we care for the animals in our park and around the world through fun and educational activities, amazing animal shows, and up-close animal encounters! Counselors trained in youth development will lead groups in games, songs, and activities that can only be found at SeaWorld while campers experience one of a kind animal shows, visit animal habitats in the park and behind the scenes, and ride some thrilling roller coasters (campers must meet height requirements). 

After a week full of fun, campers (and their parents) can join us for a SeaWorld style sleepover! Depending on the age group and week of attendance, campers will have the choice to sleep in one of three venues: The Penguin Encounter with penguins and puffins, Explorer's Reef with sharks and sting rays, or Discovery Point with dolphins.
