Maritime Aquarium Summer Camp Programs

Kids ages 6 to 15 can spend their summer deep in the world of sharks, seals, crabs and fish through The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk’s 2018 Summer Camp programs.

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 theme of each week’s session, activities even may include beach explorations and outings onto Long Island Sound aboard the Aquarium’s research vessel.

Programs start June 18, with most occurring from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Pre-care is available beginning at 8:30 a.m., and extended care runs until 5:30 p.m.
