SYF, in partnership with SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, provides underprivileged youth the chance to participate in interactive and innovative learning experiences that only SeaWorld can provide.
The youth travel to one of the SeaWorld parks and participate in a three-day resident camp program where they work hand in hand with the park's animal caregivers. They learn firsthand how to take care of animals and experience up close animal interactions. In addition, students learn about conservation programs and how their behavior and actions can impact wild places.
