Mermaid Camp - Ages 7-14

Now your child can experience what it is like to be an underwater performer at Mermaid Camp. Week Wachee, home of the famous underwater Mermaid show, will train your child in underwater surface air techniques and the responsibilities of being a mermaid. At the end of the program, your child will participate in one mermaid show as a dry performer.

Camps are two-day weekend affairs where each child will receive two underwater training sessions per day, a "mermaid makeover" by their camp trainer and take home an autographed photo with her and a self-portrait in a mermaid tail.

Mermaid Camp dates for 2014 are:

  • April 5-6 (ages 7-10)
  • May 17-18 (ages 7-10)
  • June 14-15 (ages 7-10)
  • June 21-22 (ages 7-10) SOLD OUT
  • June 28-29 (ages 7-10)
  • July 5-6 (ages 7-10)
  • July 12-13 (ages 7-10)
  • July 26-27 (ages 26-27)
  • August 9-10 (ages 11-14) SOLD OUT
  • August 23-24 (ages 11-14)

The cost — $300 — includes lunch both days and passes good for two daily admissions on child's scheduled camp weekend.

Weeki Wachee also offers a Junior Lifeguard Camp, a Junior Ranger Camp and a Sirens of the Deep Mermaid Camp. This mermaid camp is for adults age 30 and above and the 2014 dates are sold out.
