Kids ages 6 to 15 can dive into the fascinating ocean world through fun summer-camp programs at The Maritime Aquarium. One-, two- and three-week programs available. New in 2018: half-day programs for 5-yr-olds, and a 9-day Alaska trip for ages 13-16. The Maritime Aquarium will show campers the fun side of science inquiry, with lots of hands-on activities, experiments and – best of all – encounters with marine animals. Depending on the age group and week’s topic, activities even may include beach explorations and outings onto Long Island Sound aboard the Aquarium’s research vessel.
