Welcome To Virtually Camden

The Center for Aquatic Sciences provides opportunities for exploration and engagement in parks, and along the waterways and trails located throughout Camden. You can sign up for one of our in-person land or water programs. Or use our Virtually Camden collection of online virtual tours, scavenger hunts, fact sheets and other activities to create your own adventure with family and friends in a park near you. All are designed to be easily accessible using a smartphone. We will be adding new things every few weeks, so check in regularly to see what’s new.

A View Before You Visit

There are a few places in Camden that are not open to the public (yet) but the Center offers programs that will take you there. We miss our community kayak tours and Petty’s Island hikes, and hope to get back to our in-person programming soon. Until then, sit back and enjoy virtual tours of some of our favorite places in Camden..

AWE Watershed Fellows
The Watercycle

As a member of the Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE), the Center for Aquatic Sciences is participating in a Watershed Fellows program designed to foster watershed stewardship by establishing a team of ambassadors who will engage visitors in activities that explore the Delaware River watershed and encourage stewardship, on a personal and community level. The Center’s Watershed Fellows are helping to create our Virtually Camden programs and can also be seen traveling the Wiggins Waterfront Promenade and other green spaces on a specially designed tricycle called the WaterCycle with live animals, games and other activities for children and adults.


Our Watershed Fellows engage aquarium visitors and members of our local watershed community with activities that emphasize the importance of watershed stewardship. They also help the Center to connect with new and underserved audiences. By the end of their 12 weeks of service, our Fellows become local watershed experts and ambassadors to their community, and will have introduced many new people to local trails and waterways, as well as the steps they can take to help restore and protect the Delaware River watershed.

Camden Trail Interpretation and Enhancement Project

The Center is partnering with Cooper Ferry Partnership to develop and implement trail enhancements along the Camden waterfront in the form of interpretive trail signage with conservation messaging, along with educational activities, as a value-added amenity to the waterfront from the Ulysses Wiggins Promenade into the North Camden and Cramer Hill sections of the city. 

With grant support from William Penn Foundation, Phase 1 of the project will provide activities and signage in four key areas along the Camden waterfront: Wiggins Park, Adventure Aquarium entrance, Cooper’s Poynt Park and Pyne Poynt Park. Activities and signage will focus on why the Delaware River is important to all of us, ways to enjoy our local watershed, waterfront history and actions everyone can take ensure a clean and healthy watershed.
