Mermaid Sighting: Mermaid Camps

Hasn’t everyone, at some point in their life, wished they were a mermaid? Be honest! Well, of course you have, and now you can! The world famous mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Florida actually offer Mermaid Camps!

That’s right! You can attend a special camp, just for mermaids! They offer their Adventures Under the Spring Mermaid Camp, for children ages 7 to 14. Kids that participate learn what it’s like to be an underwater performer. During the underwater training, kids will learn the basic ballet moves that the mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs perform every day. Attendees also learn the daily responsibilities of being a mermaid and a behind the scenes point-of-view at what it takes to put on a mermaid show. There’s a Mermaid Makeover, complete with a self portrait and a group shot, so the memories last forever. Campers even get to participate in one of the mermaid shows as a dry performer in the underwater theater! They also offer a Sirens of the Deep Camp for adults with all the same fun and magic, ending with a live performance by the participants for their family and friends.  How much fun is that?!

If you want more information about the camps, or Weeki Wachee Springs in general, visit their website or find them on their official Weeki Wachee Springs Facebook Page.
