Virtual Adventures

Join us on an adventure to explore, discover, and learn… all from the safety and comfort of your home! In this immersive experience, participants are invited to play a role in an adventure story, unlocking objectives as they work together to solve puzzles, complete S.T.E.M. challenges, and learn along the way. Each adventure includes an Explorer Kit with all the materials you will need, as well as three days of exciting expeditions with other young explorers, led by trained Aquarium instructors.


What to Expect

What does a Virtual Aquarium Adventure look like?

During this unique summer, Aquarium Adventures are a way for kids to engage with their peers and continue their learning with fun, hands-on activities. Each kit includes access to three days of Zoom video learning sessions*, 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 on an epic adventure with games, experiments, and animal encounters.

In addition to live facilitation, campers will be given daily screen-free challenges to get them up and moving. Each participant will also receive an Explorer Kit with all the materials needed to complete engaging art projects, science demonstrations, and S.T.E.M. challenges. After registration, you will receive instructions for picking up your kit.

*Internet access is required for online learning sessions.

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, engineering and design challenges, art projects, and exclusive Aquarium content such as animal encounters and behind-the-scenes experiences. Our sessions also include movement breaks, to exercise bodies as well as minds. After registering, you will receive a schedule for your session so you will know what activities your child will be participating in each session.

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. 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.
