Become a Junior Biologist this summer!


A new summer program for kids aged 7-14 years old s is perfect for those passionate about marine animals and ocean conservation. In Dubai Aquarium’s Junior Biologist summer camp, our aim is to educate kids with the right information based on science to create informed, future custodians of the ocean and all its wonderful creatures within it.

What you can expect:

  • Get up close and touch live marine creatures
  • Find out why animals look and feel the way they do, how they function and what their role is in the marine environment
  • Learn what problems humans create for them and why we need to look after them.
  • Learn about Sharks and the important role they play in the marine ecosystem
  • Understand what it takes to be an aquarist and how aquariums run
  • Meet the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo carers and vets

This summer camp will be an experience they will never forget!
