Camp at the New York Aquarium

Summer camp at the New York Aquarium is BACK and we couldn't be more excited to create a welcoming, fun, and safe camp experience! We will foster campers' natural curiosity, scientific inquiry, and critical thinking skills while instilling an appreciation and connection to local and global wildlife and wild places. These in-person camps run from 9:00a - 3:00p Monday - Friday each week unless otherwise noted.

Aqua Science

Dive into the ocean with your fellow mini-marine biologists! We'll investigate different questions each day such as "Do all penguins love a cold climate?" or "How can an octopus change colors?" Through experiments, beach exploration, exhibit visits, and up-close animal encounters, our team will make some amazing aqua-discoveries!

Through hands-on projects, animal encounters, and exhibit and beach exploration, we’ll learn how marine animals use their extreme adaptations to survive in the ocean, past & present!
