Junior Mermaid Camp

Little Girls Holding Mermaid Tails

Adventures Under the Spring Camp

2-day weekend camp for children ages 7-14 - $375

If your child has ever dreamt of becoming a mermaid, you won’t want to miss this exciting 2-day camp! We’ll teach your child what it is like to be a Weeki Wachee mermaid performer. Your child will learn the grace and basic ballet moves that our mermaids perform every day and have training sessions in 15 feet of water with a watchful instructor.

Campers will learn the daily responsibilities of being a mermaid while getting a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to put on a show. On the last day of camp, all parents and friends are invited to view the underwater performance the campers have learned. Each camper will also get to participate in one of our mermaid shows as a dry performer in the underwater theater!

Your child will also receive a beautiful “Mermaid Makeover” and self-portrait, as well as a group shot of their camp. In addition, the price of each camp session includes two daily admission tickets to the park, which are good for the child’s scheduled weekend of camp. This is for the family to have the chance to enjoy the park as well, but we ask the parent to remain outside of the camp area until the pickup time.

If your child is not comfortable swimming in the spring, please reconsider this camp. Please note that your child will not be instructed to breathe off our air hoses. This requires SCUBA certification, first aid, CPR and several months of training, as well as being 18 years of age.

Your child will be swimming in approximately 15 feet of water. There will be trained underwater performers with your child at all times, and there are areas your child may hang onto if they become fatigued.

Camp sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a maximum of eight children for each camp weekend. NO EXCEPTIONS. The camp sells out quickly.  We do not offer a waitlist.
