Sea Star Camp Themes:

Exploring alongside the beluga whales, seals, and sea lions which call Mystic Aquarium home, your campers will learn about the special adaptations these animals have to survive and thrive in the ocean.
Blue Planet: July 8-12, August 5-9
Water is all around us in many different forms. Throughout this camp, your camper will dive into the world of water – what lives in it, how do animals move through it, the power of water and how do we use it? Who knows what they will discover!
Dino Dig!: July 15-19, August 12-16
What does a penguin have in common with a dinosaur? The answer to this question and more will be discovered by investigating Jurassic giants from the past. Jump into the time before we walked the Earth and learn how these magnificent creatures became the building blocks of many of today’s animals.

Some animals undergo a fantastic transformation as they grow from a juvenile to an adult. Throughout the week, campers will explore frogs, butterflies, crabs and more as they learn about these awesome changes.
