The 2023 DolphinCamp and DolphinLab course dates are posted below! Enrollment opens within the month of January 2023, and open enrollment will be announced here. Applications are not accepted prior to enrollment opening within the month of January. 

The courses and dates listed below are comprehensive and include all courses offered in 2023. 

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.

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 email the Education Department at education@dolphins.org. 

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 enrollment 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 a course. Applications are date and time stamped and are reserved on a first come-first served basis.
