Mermaid Tasha LLC will present two local weeks of Mermaid Camp featuring mermaid swim lessons, photoshoots and environmental education for aspiring mermaids and mermen ages 8-15.
During the mermaid intensive, participants undergo a mermaid transformation in their own new mermaid tail. Mermaids (and mermen) will learn how to swim safely and properly in their tail, and how to care for the environment and various marine life found locally. The camp will end with a mermaid photoshoot and posing lesson.
An after-school camp will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, June 7 to 10, at a New Road location in Lewes. The four-day camp fee is $200.
A morning camp will meet from 8 to 10 a.m., Monday to Friday, Aug. 15 to 19, also at a New Road location in Lewes. The five-day camp fee is $250.

Upon completion of the camp, mermaids/mermen will earn their FinFun Mermaid University certificates. Included in the fees are each camper’s certificate, mermaid tail and monofin to keep, photoshoot, arts and crafts, and instruction.
