Add-ons & Trip Days
We do SO much exploration in Jamaica, but can you believe that we offer even MORE!?
On the second Wednesday of our trip, campers choose what they want to do for their day! We call this day, Trip Day. Campers are able to participate a variety of amazing activities for their chosen Trip Day. Campers can also choose to stay at the Villa or hang out at the Beach, hanging out drinking smoothies, lounging by the pool, kayaking, playing board games, and catching up on some relaxing on this day! Outside of Trip Day, campers can also add on SCUBA certification and Horseback Riding to their stay with us! You'll see below all the additions you can make to your Animal Camp Jamaica trip.
We ask that all add-ons options be chosen prior to the start of your session. This helps us plan and ensure that each camper is able to participate. Changes in Trip Days are not guaranteed during a session due to the availability of the location.
Dolphin Cove’s Sea Keeper
Have you always dreamed of working with dolphins? Well, here is your chance! Spend an entire day at Dolphin Cove behind the scenes and working with their dolphin trainers. You will learn about operant conditioning and dolphin training; see behind the scenes of their food preparation kitchen; hold and snorkel with nurse sharks; and swim with dolphins! This also includes all the perks of general admission of the park: kayaking, snorkeling with stingrays, waterslide, boat rides, and holding the animals along the Jungle Trail.
Mystic Mountain 1: Rainforest Sky Explorer
Enjoy a chair lift ride through the jungle to the top of Mystic Mountain which offers a fantastic view of the town of Ocho Rios and the beautiful Caribbean Sea. At the top of the mountain, you will enjoy the shops, food, museum, and atmosphere. Spend some time in the infinity edge pool with one of the most spectacular views on the island.
Mystic Mountain 2: Rainforest Sky Explorer + Bobsled
Hold onto your hat: this is one wild ride! Inspired by the famous Jamaican Olympic team, the bobsled ride at Mystic Mountain is ranked by TripAdvisor.com as one of the top attractions in Ocho Rios Jamaica. You’ll be safely strapped into a custom-designed, high-tech sled and whoosh down a 1000-meter long track installed into the side of the mountain, completely driven by gravity!
Mystic Mountain 3: Rainforest Sky Explorer + Bobsled + Zip-line
This option combines the fantastic views of the chairlift, access to all the shops and to the pool, the Bobsled ride, and adds the amazing zip-line! Zoom through the canopy as you are led down to the bottom of the park by zip-line! This combines all the amazing parts of the park and really keeps the day filled with a fun adventure!
Scuba Diving: 2 Tank Dive
Spend some more time honing your scuba skills. **This is only available for those participants who have completed the PADI course or are already certified.
We offer campers the chance to become PADI SCUBA certified while on the island of Jamaica! How cool is that?! Campers work with the local dive shop to become PADI certified divers. Campers will have lessons both at our villa and in the ocean learning the basics of equalizing and regulating their breathing; language signs under the water; and how to be a safe and careful diver. Resort Divers in Runaway Bay Jamaica is our local dive shop and their owners are long time friends of the Martin Family. You can read more about the safety involved in SCUBA diving HERE. *Animal Camp Jamaica can not be held responsible for campers deemed unfit or unready to be certified divers. Refunds will not be given for campers who do not pass or who opt-out of finishing their training.*
Enjoy a relaxing ride on the beach! Campers need no prior experience riding to join in on this activity. We have an experienced and guiding friend who takes our campers along the beach on horseback.
