Spring Break Camp

Get up close and personal with Shedd's animals, visit behind-the-scenes work areas and travel to local natural areas to learn more about the amazing animals we care for at Shedd. Each day, you will use scientific tools, visit with special animals at Shedd Aquarium, and get a behind-the-scenes look at how we provide the best possible care to animals who live here. We will also pack our bags and head outdoors to learn about biodiversity, birding and conservation.
