Course dates for the 2021 DolphinCamp, Teen DolphinLab, and Adult DolphinLab season are posted below.

Courses are updated weekly to reflect "Open" or "Closed" based on whether spaces are available. A course listed as "Closed" indicates that the course is filled to capacity and applications will be accepted on a stand-by basis only.

The courses and dates listed below are comprehensive and include all courses that are offered in 2021. 

Dolphin Research Center's DolphinCamps, Teen DolphinLabs and Adult DolphinLabs offer experiential education at its finest! Spend five to six days learning about and interacting with dolphins, and you'll spend a lifetime remembering the experience!

The classes listed on these schedules are open for individual participants. If you are interested in bringing a group to DRC for a DolphinLab outside of the public program dates listed below, please contact the Education Department. 

You must be within the age range at the time of the program in order to participate in any DolphinCamp or DolphinLab. There are no exceptions.

Some of the summer courses fill quickly, so we recommend applying as soon as possible once registration opens. You must submit an application and all required paperwork, and pay the non-refundable, non-transferrable application deposit for your space to be held. We will not hold spaces based on a voicemail, email, or a stand alone submission of an application. Returning students are not guaranteed a space in the course. Applications are date and time stamped and are reserved on a first come-first served basis.
