ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of children are learning how to be survivors at the Flint Riverquarium.

The week long adventure camp called "Survival: Are you adapted?" teaches kids about different ways animals protect themselves in their environments.

Organizers use scavenger hunts and games to help campers understand how creatures in the Flint River cope with threats such as predators and the weather.

"We don't want it to be like school. We want it to be fun. This is summer camp, it needs to be fun. But at the same time we want to throw in a little educational stuff so that they don't even realize they're learning some things, in a fun way," said Melissa Martin, the education manager for the Flint Riverquarium.

The Riverquarium's last summer camp, "Wild and Wacky Science," is next week.  There are still some spots left.
