Virtual Aquarium Adventures

Virtual Programs for Kids

Join us on an adventure to Explore, Discover, and Learn… all from the safety and comfort of your home! Virtual Adventures are a brand new way to encourage curiosity and keep kids learning this year.

We are now offering new Virtual Adventures for Fall Recess, Thanksgiving Recess, and Winter Recess! Spend your school breaks exploring new programs, featuring seasonal themes and a simpler, more flexible format.

What does a Virtual Aquarium Adventure look like?

During this unique time, Aquarium Adventures are a way for kids to engage with their peers and Aquarium educators through fun, interactive experiences. Each Adventure consists of a Zoom video learning session*, where participants will have the opportunity to collaborate and build friendships with other young explorers. Each online session is led by at least two Aquarium educators, who will guide the group through games and animal experiences.

*Internet access is required for online learning sessions.

In order to join the online sessions, participants must have signed waivers before the start of their Virtual Adventure. Waivers can be signed electronically using CampDoc.com. After registration, you will receive instructions for using CampDoc.

As a parent/guardian, how much do I need to be involved?

Virtual Aquarium Adventures are designed with families in mind. Activities are intended to be child-led (with facilitation from camp staff) and to require minimal parent involvement. An adult will need to provide a safe environment for the child participant, as well as an internet-enabled device to participate in online sessions. Then leave the fun and learning up to us!

What does an online session look like?

Our goal is to create a fun adventure for your child that encourages learning, conversation, and growth. Online sessions will consist of interactive games and exclusive aquarium content. Our sessions also include movement breaks, to exercise bodies as well as minds.

Each registrant will receive instructions for joining online sessions on the Zoom platform. You do not need a Zoom account to participate. Zoom’s privacy policies comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). You can view their privacy policy HERE.

Online sessions are password protected and each participant must be admitted to the session by an aquarium staff member. When joining, please make sure your name matches your registration. We will only admit users whose names match our rosters. After the start of each session, staff will lock the Zoom room so that no unregistered users may join. Private chats are disabled so that there is no unmonitored communication between participants. Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is a strict no-bullying zone: all sessions are monitored by a trained aquarium staff member to ensure a safe, respectful environment for all.
While aquarium staff monitor all online sessions, we encourage parents to talk to their children about internet safety.
