Dolphin DayCamp is a fun-filled, active five-day program that introduces children to the amazing world of dolphins. Campers meet DRC's resident dolphin population, getting to know and respect each dolphin as an individual. DRC puts them up close to observe the dolphins in action so they can learn more about each dolphin's unique behaviors and physical characteristics.
With hands-on activities, group discussions, games, crafts and more, their days will prove that learning is fun!
