Summer Aqua camps

Our traditional Aqua Camp programmes, which are offered to children for one week only each summer, provide campers with the opportunity to have fun, positive learning experiences about nature.  They offer hands-on education, field trips, animal encounters, and arts and crafts.  Each camp may also include daily trips to a swimming location. Aqua Camps are for pre-school through senior 1 aged children. Applications will be available to download on March 1 each year and will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Aqua Camps are for BZS and ACP members' children only - and all are welcome to become members. Children's parents or grandparents must have a current, minimum level of Killifish (Family or Grandparent) membership to register for Aqua Camps.
