Virtual SEA LIFE Holiday Camp

SEA LIFE Melbourne's virtual holiday camps are the ultimate boredom buster for kids at home these school holidays!

In this SEA LIFE first, kids can visit SEA LIFE via Zoom and talk to our keepers, meet SEA LIFE's animals and take part in fun challenges. Designed to be interactive, and encouraging curiosity, creativity, and learning - it's all about asking questions and having fun! Hosted by a marine education expert via Zoom, each camp features a different animal each day! Book one camp or book them all! The sessions run for three hours from 9am - 12pm (with breaks).

The program dives deep into the world of penguins, seahorse, sharks, turtles, jellyfish and crocodiles with the aim of encouraging kids to learn, have fun and connect with the creatures! Every day you will get to meet and animal keeper, watch an animal feed, and spend three hours with a marine expert!

Limited spots available.
