Summer Camps 2021

With health and safety as our number one priority, we are happy to confirm that we will be offering unique and memorable camp experiences for children entering grades PreK-10, as well as family programs for a caregiver/child pair, this summer!

Mystic Aquarium offers the perfect environment to enjoy and explore animals while having outdoor adventures in nature. In addition, each camp will have its own dedicated classroom within the Milne Ocean Science and Conservation Center, which is separated from the general public, to continue learning and exploration.
