Ocean Park Academy Presents New Summer Adventure 2019

2019-05-14

Up-close Encounters with Animal Ambassadors Ignite Young Explorers’ Minds through 4C Learning

Ocean Park Academy Hong Kong launches Summer Adventure 2019 for 4 to 11-year-olds. From feeding sharks, rays, sea jellies and coral reef fish; paying a friendly visit to Chinese alligators, seals, sea lions, Asian small-clawed otters and penguins; to venturing behind the scene of the popular Sea Jelly Spectacular and spending a night at the Grand Aquarium, young explorers will immerse themselves in amazing animal discoveries.
 
Coupled with fascinating activities including art creation, team-based missions, and exploratory challenges, the programmes led by Ocean Park’s educators are sure to ignite young explorers’ minds via 4C learning – connecting them with nature, sparking their curiosity, grooming their conservation literacy, and developing their character.
 
Ocean Park Academy’s Summer Adventure 2019 empowers young explorers to discover the world at their own pace through authentic experiences. In addition to up-close encounters with the Park’s animal ambassadors, participants will be able to team up with their caretakers for a deeper dive into the animals’ daily lives, and even take part in preparing a special meal for them. Being part of these specially designed edutainment experiences, young explorers will gain eye-opening first-hand knowledge of the natural world!
 
Five Explorer Adventure Programmes for Different Age Groups
Five programmes are available including two “Little Explorers” programmes curated for children aged 4 to 5, two “Junior Explorers” programmes for children aged 6 to 8, and the “Adventurous Explorers” programme designed for children aged 9 to 11.
