Scout Programs

Are you looking for an underwater overnight adventure for your scouts? You have just located the perfect place to join in on the fun. These overnights are designed for your scouts ages 6-13 and their chaperones.


We offer a unique collaboration with a leading institute of higher education, the University of Connecticut, Avery Point, located on Long Island Sound, for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates and more opportunities for college students.


Just think about how awesome it would be to come in after everyone else has gone home to explore the Aquarium without all the crowds.


Mystic Aquarium has a number of opportunities for teens including volunteering, classes and more.

Celebrate your child’s special day by discovering Amazing Sharks, having a Beluga BlastPenguin Palooza or discovering what adventure lies in the Suitcase of Surprises.
